LAUREL releases two new singles ‘Crave’ & ‘Same Mistakes’ taken from forthcoming debut album ‘DOGVIOLET’

Rising UK star LAUREL has today released two new singles ‘Crave’ and ‘Same Mistakes’, both taken from her incredible debut album ‘DOGVIOLET’, out August 24th on Counter Records. These two new tracks follow lead single ‘Lovesick’ and further showcase the sublime vocals and raw guitars of the evocative and effortless 12 track LP.

The two new singles reveal the stylistic range of ‘DOGVIOLET’, with the gritty, driving blues of ‘Same Mistakes’ in contrast to the cinematic and soaring ‘Crave’. First single ‘Lovesick’ set the tone for the album, with open, sparse production revealing LAUREL’s effortlessly emotive voice and the vintage warmth of her guitar playing. Other album highlights include spellbinding live favourite ‘Life Worth Living’, the infectiously wounded ‘Adored’, spikey punk pop hit ‘Same Mistakes’ and bitingly intense track ‘Sun King’ showcasing LAUREL’s mesmerising and intense vocals, seeing her singing ‘What is life, but a dream’.

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.’

Already receiving support from Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart, Apple Music, Spotify, The Guardian, Wonderland and I-D Magazine, as well as partnerships with Burberry, Ellesse, Levis and Vans, ‘DOGVIOLET’ follows LAUREL’s incredible ‘Park’ EP and her captivating Spotify Live EP, released in 2017.

Following a huge 2017, including a UK and European tour with Oh Wonder, two sold-out UK headline tours, and appearances at The Secret Garden Party, Live At Leeds, Outlines Festival and Golden Leaves Festival, LAUREL heads out on a UK and European tour this autumn.
