Boomkat Product Review:
London’s answer to Lana Del Rey?
“‘DOGVIOLET’ is rising UK star LAUREL’s debut album for Counter Records. Leading with infectious debut single ‘Lovesick’, the evocative and effortless 12 track LP sees Laurel showcase her sublime vocals and raw guitars.
Recorded without glossing over the imperfections and driven by her personal lyrics and stirring melodies, every track on the album was written and recorded in LAUREL’s home studio in East London. It was then taken to Gizzard Studios to be fed back through a reel-to-reel tape recorder, re-capturing the organic tone that is prevalent within her breathtaking live shows.
Titled after the flower, ‘DOGVIOLET’ is a deeply personal exploration of the bittersweet feeling of love. Laurel says ‘I wrote these songs at home often locking myself away for periods of time in order to capture the true mania that comes from love; although a beautiful feeling, it can often feel a lot uglier.’”
