Following on from a huge couple of years, East London’s indie-pop darling LAUREL, known for her triple j album of the week “Dogviolet” is heading to Australia this May. Laurel released “Dogviolet” in August of last year to critical response, with the Independent calling it a work of “spine-tingling, attention-grabbing chamber pop”, likened to Beach House, Florence & The Machine and CHVRCHES. Without glossing over imperfections, driven by her personal lyrics and stirring melodies, “Dogviolet” is the deeply personal exploration of the bittersweet feeling of love, leading with the single ‘Lovesick’.
For the past few years Laurel has been busy trekking across Europe and the UK – performing alongside alt-pop duo Oh Wonder, MS MR, KT Tunstall, and John Newman. She’s completed two sold-out UK headline tours and appeared at some of England’s best-loved summer festivals including Secret Garden Party, Live At Leeds, Bestival Circus and Outlines Festival.
In an interview with Pilerats last year Laurel hinted at plans for an Australian visit in the first half of 2019 – and we’re stoked to finally welcome her down under. Now’s the time to get around her emotive vocals, playful guitar melodies and hypnotic pop.
