The Isle of Wight raised, fuzzed up Indie/Pop artist claims: ‘Don’t tell me stories, I’ll write songs about them’.
After a successful year of releases, securing premieres via Clash Magazine, Earmilk and support via Crack in the Road, Nothing But Hope And Passion and Spotify play-listing. Lauran has also gone to selling out her first headline show, as well as support Clean Cut Kid/ Sarah Close/ Jerry Williams and has taken to the Bestival main stage for two years in a row. Lauran is due to support ‘Girli’ and ‘Bryde’ this Spring, as well as make appearances at Common People and Isle of Wight Festival.
Lauran’s ever-growing sound hints at a grander live vision, captured eloquently in her recordings to date. Tom Robinson at BBC 6 Music described her prior release ‘Hunny is this what adults do?’ as ‘ a colourful animation in which Lauran’s left – field personality spills over’ he went on to say ‘It’s uniqueness of sound is what makes this song so darned stand-out attractive.’
Her latest single ‘Fun Like This’ has been described as a ‘Pop etched ode, to non conformity’. It’s said to be a ‘big old grungey 90’s single, which has been nailed perfectly. You can find it on the New Indie/ Alt and Indielista official Spotify playlists.
CLASH: Lauran Hibberd has an innate knack with melodies.
Each song from the rising talent feels immaculately well packaged, the finely honed verse leading to a gleefully contagious chorus.
CRACK IN THE ROAD: Lauran Hibberd’s songwriting has a real sense of personality and character to it – a trait that’s increasingly rare in a passively playlist orientated world.
