She further explains –  I wanted to take the typical story of girl-gets-ghosted and twist it. In my version a computer user attempts to delete their femme digital assistant. For the past two years I’ve been curious about the increasing deployment of fembots in digital interfaces and by extension the automation of what has traditionally been deemed women’s labor. Examples of recognizable contemporary fembots are exhausting : Microsoft’s Cortana, Apple’s Siri, Nuance’s Nina, Amazon’s Alexa. To really destroy her, we will have to contend with the long standing history of sexism we’ve allowed to infect our devices. 

‘Body Copy’ is an album of psychedelic electro. Laura’s softly spoken, trance like vocals are accompanied by experimental bedroom production which includes a number of film samples and sound effects.

Having been compared to Chris and Cosey – she is influenced by Karen Dalton‘s raw emotion, the abstract storytelling and dissonance of late Scott Walker, the synthesis of Mort Garson and Tangerine Dream and the heavy sounds of Hogg.
