Rippling through the emerging indie undercurrent with her trademark slacker-pop specialism, Lauran Hibberd teams with The Regrettes’ Lydia Night for the rousing new anthem ‘How Am I Still Alive?’ “Doing a collaboration was something I’d always wanted to do”, reveals the Isle of Wight indie sensation. “I’ve always felt it really important to work together with similar artists instead of working against them, especially in these times. I am super stoked to have Lydia (Night) sing on the track; I toured with The Regrettes in 2019 and THEY ROCK. It was so much fun, and I took so much from it, and Lydia is bad ass so YEAH!” Detailing the origins of her newest effort, the charismatic figure revealed: “‘How Am I Still Alive?’toys with the bleakness of everyday life and makes it sound more entertaining than it actually is. Michael (Cera) becomes the focus point of getting through the mundane but plays on the idea of if I actually had him I probably wouldn’t want him anyway. That, and the everyday celebration of making it through another day pretty much sums up the last year of my life”. For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)
Brandishing her boldest release to date and hurtling towards the forefront of the emerging indie elite, Isle of Wight native Lauran Hibberd’s slacker pop rampage hits full throttle with explosive new cut ‘Boy Bye’. Teaming up with esteemed producer Suzy Shinn (Weezer, Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, Dua Lipa) in lockdown for a transatlantic recording partnership, ‘Boy Bye’ marks the first product of these sessions, exuding her trademark satirical and anthemic tendencies, whilst providing a clear indication of what to expect from her next batch of material. With a constantly growing list of achievements, the indie sensation’s profile is certainly developing an impressive rate, with a slew of acclaim across the BBC Radio 1 airwaves (Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Jack Saunders) following recent singles ‘Old Nudes’ and ‘Bang Bang Bang’, not to mention universal backing throughout the tastemaker community (NME, The Line Of Best Fit, Dork, Billboard, Clash, Gigwise) and thrilling support tours alongside US contemporaries Hippo Campus and The Regrettes. Detailing her rousing latest effort, Hibberd explained: “‘Boy Bye’ IS co-dependency, it has a scarily obsessive nature about it and is based on the need to ‘feed’ someone to keep them around. I sort of battle with myself throughout the whole track, the same way you would in your brain when stuff like this happens and you try […] For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)
