Effortlessly striking a poetic balance between pop and folk, Lauran Hibberd combines her uncompromisingly delicate vocals with a simple and elegant guitar style.
The 19-year-old singer released her debut single, ‘The House I Built When I Was Small’, earlier this year which was picked up by Soho Radio, Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music), BBC Introducing (Radio 1), Maz Tappuni (Radio X) and more garnering her national airplay.
The follow-up to Isle of Wight native’s breakthrough track ‘The House I Built When I Was Small’ see’s her most exquisite work yet. Laura’s Favourite Shade Of Blue EP features five brand new tracks including the EP’s eponymously titled lead single. Haunting and inspirational, the Lucy Rose inspired artist beautifully delivers her skewed version of pop.
Discussing her latest release, she describes that the songs on the record “demonstrate the happiness that comes with sadness.” She continues, “It signifies the purity that comes with youth, and how it slowly disappears into the unavoidable…(love, loss and all that falls in-between)”.
After touring the UK extensively over the last 18 months, Lauran and her band have graced the stage at a number of sought after events including Bestival, Y-Not, and Isle of Wight Festival to name a few. Back with a new set and energy, the band prepares to deliver some of their best performances yet this year.
Lauran’s Favourite Shade Of Blue EP was released back in May, and now she is gearing up to unveil the highly anticipated second single, ‘Old Head Young Shoulders‘. Watch this space for updates on her latest offering.
