Laurel maintains stripped back sound on brooding new track "Lovesick"

09 May 2018, 10:32 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

With bolder instrumentals than usual, Laurel manages to stay stripped back with the pensive new offering "Lovesick".

London's Laurel captured listeners with her soothing, powerful vocals. Managing to maintain a strong sound without major instrumental domination, Laurel reflects with emotion on her new offering.

"Lovesick", taken from Laurel's upcoming debut album DOGVIOLET, sees the young Londoner trail delicately through tough realisations, while still finding a strong enough sound to showcase the powerful undertones in her vocals.

Speaking about the track, Laurel explains, "I wrote these songs at home often locking myself away for periods of time in order to capture the true mania that comes from love; although a beautiful feeling, it can often feel a lot uglier."

Being the first release from her debut DOGVIOLET, "Lovesick" is an honest, yet almost nail-biting glimpse into the intimate simplicity of Laurel's sound.

"Lovesick" is the first track to be lifted from Laurel's debut album DOGVIOLET, out 24 August via Counter Records. Laurel will also be touring the UK this autumn.
