Laurel – ‘Blue Blood’
Posted on August 17, 2015
Laurel is a singer-songwriter hailing from a tiny town near Southampton. Clearly noticing her talent for music at a young age, she has been writing, producing and performing her own original material since age 14. Following the completion of her college exams, Laurel moved to London and signed a deal with Turn First Records (Iggy Azalea, Ellie Goulding, Dan Croll) off the strength of one song demo.
At only 21 years old, Laurel has released single ‘Fire Breather’ and two EPs, ‘To The Hills’ and ‘Holy Water’, to high critical acclaim. This month she has released her new video for the track ‘Blue Blood’. Reaching online audiences last month, the track has already ridden high on Hype Machine’s Most Popular chart. Another magical yet haunting pop ballad, the song perfectly embodies everything she’s about. Simple, yet devastatingly powerful vocal melodies shine above beautiful orchestral instrumentation, with a huge backdrop of thumping drums.
