Since releasing a collaboration with Grammy Nominated DJ/producer Kaskade for International Women’s Day this year, 2017 seems set to be a breakthrough year for the London based songwriter, rapper and all round creative Laura Lamn. Their take on Chaka Khan’s classic ‘I’m Every Woman’garnered support from tastemakers including Billboard, Dancing Astronaut, This Song Is Sick and acted as a catalyst for Laura to develop her unique rap meets disco-house approach to music making.

Produced by long time collaborator S2_COOL (who’s vocals also feature in the chorus hooks) her new solo single ‘Boyfriend’ sees the pair on top form as Laura delivers some clever wordplay and imagery, channelled through a loose and sexy flow, over S2’s all-analogue synth and drum machine driven arrangement. Somewhat of an ode to teenage love, she explains:
“This is the first song where I wrote the lyrics purely whilst roller skating. It was a sunny day in Springville and I was doing laps of the skate park in my Moxis, whilst listening to the beat S2_COOL sent me. At the time I was lost in a dizzy teenage wash of infatuation and the lyrics came from that excitable and magical place.”
Laura’s other solo offering, ‘Move It Like You Mean It’ also showcases her flair for writing personal and engaging, hook based singles. It went on to gain radio support from BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music. As well as being a world record holding hula hooper, her talents also spread to roller skating, both passions of which she has utilised in previous music videos. Known for creating quirky and fun videos for her tracks, there is a colourful and dance-filled video for Boyfriend in the can, expect this on her Vevo channel on 7th June.
