“Sweat Patch” is full of the heavy guitar riffs and sarcastic lyrics we’ve come to expect from rising singer-songwriter Lauran Hibberd, and it's a track that further solidifies her position as one to watch.
Lauran Hibberd isn’t a stranger to writing about taboos. She’s covered sugar daddies, hoochies, jealous girls, and now she’s singing about drugs in her grungy new alt-pop song “Sweat Patch”. Straight off the back of her debut EP Everything is Dogs, this self-assured new track shows Hibberd’s truly settling into her sound.
“'Sweat Patch' is arguably a song about drugs, but it’s not like I’m trying to be cool about it,” says Hibberd. “There’s loads of songs about getting high, not as many songs about watching and I guess analysing other people do it. I guess this is me, soberly sat in a room watching all of my friends take drugs. I guess there’s also a nod to the elephant in the room, A DUDE. There’s always a dude! And I guess this song stemmed from me being into this guy, but he was pretty much into other things more.”
