LISTEN: Lauran Hibberd - 'How Am I Still Alive?' (ft. Lydia Night)

I'm deep in the inbox, sifting through today's new releases (so much brilliant new music out today - lots on my office stereo playlist here if you fancy!) and taking a little break from getting angry about the all too familiar un-diverse festival line-up announcements to write something here. Feels like a perfect time to share a track by two artists who I would love to see at a festival (or indeed, anywhere)... I'm a little bit obsessed with this new track from Lauran Hibberd, featuring Lydia Night of The Regrettes. It's maybe my favourite of Lauran's tracks so far... seriously a brilliant collaboration. How Am I Still Alive? is taken from Lauran's upcoming Goober EP, due July 30th, and sees Lauran teaming up with producer Suzy Shinn (Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, Weezer) once again.

"How Am I Still Alive? toys with the bleakness of everyday life and makes it sound more entertaining than it actually is. Michael (Cera) becomes the focus point of getting through the mundane but plays on the idea of if I actually had him I probably wouldn't want him anyway. That, and the everyday celebration of making it through another day pretty much sums up the last year of my life." 

On working with Lydia, Lauran shares: "Doing a collaboration was something I'd always wanted to do. I've always felt it really important to work together with similar artists instead of working against them, especially in these times. I am super stoked to have Lydia sing on the track; I toured with The Regrettes in 2019 and THEY ROCK. It was so much fun, and I took so much from it, and Lydia is bad ass so YEAH!"
