If you could write a song with any artist, living or dead, who would it be?
Phoebe Bridgers, she is the love of my life, she doesn’t know it yet, but she will. I just think she’s insane. Lyrically, I’d read a shopping list she wrote and she’d make that sound like something I wanna read. I just wanna hang out with her really, she seems cool.
Have you been touring much?
We’ve just came off a headline tour this week actually! We were on a tour with Hippo Campus around Europe and the UK a couple of months back so we haven’t really stopped but that’s good! When I do stop I’m just like “What am I gonna do!?” so it’s nice to be out and about! We’re from the Isle of Wight so everywhere’s super far away, I forget how to walk a bit when I get out of the car! When we got here I was like “Is this grass??”
What do you like about touring compared to Festivals?
I think festivals are a totally different environment, my ears are super sensitive, so after two days of Festivals I’m like “Oh my god, I need some silence”, but I do love festivals. I love portaloos, I’m really good at getting changed in them, I’ll be making a big transformation in the next twenty minutes, in, out, BOOM. Festivals are great because they’re a good place for new people to find you, like you’re just there and you might as well go see this person or that person, you can just grab a beer and watch something new. When it’s a normal show it’s more people who’ve already listened to you before.
Anything you’re looking forward to completing by the end of this year?
I’ve got an EP coming out in September!* Which is super exciting, it’ll be my first proper debut record coming with vinyls so I can actually hold it and be like “I made this!”
*[Lauran’s EP ‘Everything Is Dogs’ is out now. Stream it here]
What’s your favourite song to play live at the moment?
Probably my single ‘Hoochie’, that’s a fun one, I do a really bad little guitar solo in it, it’s purposefully bad but funny, I enjoy that every time.
