Laurel on Thursday 20th September 2018
Birmingham Promoters present Laurel with support
Rising UK star LAUREL has announced her incredible debut album ‘DOGVIOLET’, out August 24th on Counter Records. Leading with infectious debut single ‘Lovesick’, the evocative and effortless 12 track LP sees Laurel showcase her sublime vocals and raw guitars.
Recorded without glossing over the imperfections and driven by her personal lyrics and stirring melodies, every track on the album was written and recorded in LAUREL’s home studio in East London. It was then taken to Gizzard Studios to be fed back through a reel-to-reel tape recorder, re-capturing the organic tone that is prevalent within her breathtaking live shows.
Titled after the flower, ‘DOGVIOLET’ is a deeply personal exploration of the bittersweet feeling of love. Laurel says ‘I wrote these songs at home often locking myself away for periods of time in order to capture the true mania that comes from love; although a beautiful feeling, it can often feel a lot uglier.’
Following a huge 2017, including a UK and European tour with Oh Wonder, two sold-out UK headline tours, and appearances at The Secret Garden Party, Live At Leeds, Outlines Festival and Golden Leaves Festival.
First single ‘Lovesick’ sets the tone for the album, with open, sparse production revealing LAUREL’s effortlessly emotive voice and the vintage warmth of her guitar playing. Other album highlights include spellbinding live favourite ‘Life Worth Living’, the infectiously wounded ‘Adored’, spikey punk-pop hit ‘Same Mistakes’ and bitingly intense track ‘Sun King’ showcasing LAUREL’s mesmerising and intense vocals, seeing her singing ‘What is life, but a dream’.
Already receiving support from Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart, Apple Music, Spotify, The Guardian, Wonderland and I-D Magazine, as well as partnerships with Burberry, Ellesse, Levis and Vans, ‘DOGVIOLET’ follows LAUREL’s incredible ‘Park’ EP and her captivating Spotify Live EP, released in 2017.
