Stream Laurel's Holy Water EP and watch her new "Memorials" video

Southampton songstress Laurel is streaming her new EP Holy Water and sharing her video for "Memorials".

In our recent 8/10 review of the short-player, reviewer Jon Putnam wrote of the calibre of both release and single "Memorials":

"Lead single, “Memorials”, encapsulates Laurel’s M.O. to a tee highlighting her rich, husky vocals gelling impeccably with her backdrop, yet still paradoxically creating a cinematic feel despite the songs’ relative musical sparseness. Laurel shrewdly works this formula practically flawlessly throughout Holy Water, her vocal phrasing weaving in and around her mostly percussive surroundings, at times sauntering sensual circles around the listener and at others deliciously wafting past only to grab you by the collar and yank you forward with her at the last second. The most impressive and auspicious aspect of Holy Water is that Laurel has matured across the board, sonically, vocally, and in her songwriting, shedding her more adolescent tendencies to prime herself for the big time."
