While many other new solo artists have found themselves slipping into the same old singer-songwriter formula these last few years, newcomer LAUREL looks to turn the preconception of the solo act on its head as she delivers her eagerly-awaited debut album.

Described as a cross between Florence Welch and Laura Marling, the Southampton-via-London frontwoman has managed to perfectly blend the anthemic with the thought-provoking throughout her first full-length 'DOGVIOLET'; a record that boasts huge, euphoric sounds with a humble personality, giving us a truly memorable listen.

With acclaim flooding in from the likes of Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, The Guardian and many more, LAUREL is set to become one of the most memorable additions to this year's new music list, as she also heads out on an extensive UK tour over the coming months.
