Enigmatic Isle Of Wight sensation Lauran Hibberd shares infectious new single ‘Frankie’s Girlfriend’ – released 25th July
Debut EP ‘Everything is Dogs’ out 20th Sept
Enigmatic Isle Of Wight sensation Lauran Hibberd continues her remarkable ascent with infectious new single Frankie’s Girlfriend, and announces the arrival of debut EPEverything is Dogs, set for release 20th September.
Exuding confidence and packed with her trademark charisma, the slacker-pop specialist’s newest effort heralds the next chapter in a whirlwind summer which has already included a rousing display on Glastonbury’s BBC Introducing stage, an EU tour alongside US indie rockers Hippo Campus and her own biggest headline shows to date.
Having earned enormous praise across the airwaves from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders, the rising musician’s witty persona and fuzzy anthems have also drawn widespread plaudits throughout the press landscape. Flattering comparisons to contemporaries Courtney Barnett and Phoebe Bridgers have followed, and with a debut EP incoming, attention around the indie newcomer is sure to intensify.
Discussing her irresistible latest cut, Hibberd explained: “Frankie’s Girlfriend is exactly why it can suck to be a nice person. This track is a story, based on true events and exaggerated for selling millions of (aka 600) records. It’s honestly about a pal of mine Frankie, I had a dream about him, like a weird one. And it spiraled. His chick at the time was a nightmare, I was lucky enough to witness that first hand. For me, it’s my darkest track yet. But not dark scary, dark as in three-week holiday to Mexico”.
