LISTEN: Lauran Hibberd - 'Frankie's Girlfriend'

A sure-fire way to pique my interest in your EP... name it Everything is Dogs. From what I've heard so far, Lauran Hibberd is on to a winner, with her EP due for release on 20th September. She first came onto my radar a few months back with Sugardaddy and later Hoochie, both of which I enjoyed. Since then, she's clearly been building a name for herself performing at various festivals and gaining radio support. Taken from the upcoming EP, new track Frankie's Girlfriend follows the same trajectory - it's a confident and charismatic piece of indie rock.

Talking about the track, Lauran explains that it shows "why it can suck to be a nice person. This track is a story, based on true events and exaggerated for selling millions of (aka 600) records. It's honestly a pal of mine Frankie, I had a dream about him, like a weird one. And it spiralled. His chick at the time was a nightmare, I was lucky enough to witness that first hand. For me, it's my darkest track yet. But not dark scary, dark as in three-week holiday to Mexico." 

With an EU support tour alongside Hippo Campus coming up, Lauran also has her biggest headline shows to date coming up this Autumn. Tickets here!
