The multi-talented Laurel is on the rise. The 19-year-old singer/songwriter and producer is signed to Turn First Records, and has been making waves as of late with her production and shimmering vocals. Back in April, Laurel released her To The Hills EP on iTunes, and today she shares a second track off that project on her Soundcloud.
“Shells” was originally an acoustic song, written by Laurel when she was 17 and going through a breakup. The song’s style however has been dramatically altered, after her mother suggested putting the song over her friend Shadow Child’s track. It’s a brilliant pairing; the song starts off slow and woeful, but it’s soon transformed by the complimenting electronics into a subtly kicking jam.
Listen to the track below, and get familiar with the young talent in our interview with her here.
