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 and support via Crack in the Road. A stream of successful live dates (including a sell out headline show, Clean Cut Kid/ Sarah Close support and taking to Bestival main stage) – 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 latest 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.’ With even more under her belt, including ‘Bryde’ tour support and being selected via Hurd Music for vinyl pressing – it’s looking like 2018 will be a great year for Lauran with lots of new releases to come. The first of which partnered with Diamond Club records.

“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.“ – CLASH
“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.” – CRACK IN THE ROAD
