ABOUT LAURA K

23 year old Laura K wrote her first song when she was 8, and learned to play piano 3 years earlier. Today, she writes lots of poppy songs and plays several instruments: keyboard, ukulele, glockenspiel and melodica, whilst also singing with her lovely voice. Her songs tell tales of love, life and heart break, yet she somehow manages to do it in an uplifting and amusing way. She used to live in Brisbane, where she played in bands like Roman History and Little Scout, but is now based in London. In addition to making sweet songs on her own, she also plays keyboards and sings backing vocals in Tigercats. She says that the coolest thing that’s ever happened to her was meeting Jarvis Cocker backstage at Leeds Festival, where he put her on the guest list for one of Pulp’s sold out shows at Brixton Academy. So, now you know Laura K. Maybe you should listen to her music?  www.laurak.bandcamp.com

A PHOTO INTERVIEW WITH LAURA K

The innovative website A NEGATIVE NARRATIVE make interviews with bands, but instead of answering with words, the artists have to take a photograph for each question. You can view Laura K’s photographic answers on A.N.N.’s website, or in the booklet for this single. Hope you enjoy them!

We are collaborating with A Negative Narrative on this single-series, and they have made photo-interviews with all our single-artists. Visit http://anegativenarrative.com/ and see more bands’ photographic answers to their interview questions.


THE COVER SONG:

We have encouraged the single-bands to make a cover version of a song they think deserve more attention.

Laura K has chosen to cover “Beach Comber”, originally written and performed by Real Estate. The song can be found on Real Estate’s self-titled debut album (listen on Spotify)
