New single and tour including date at BBC Radio 1 Introducing Showcase – Released 12th October 2018 viaBe-Known Music
“Perfectly simple, condensed pop songs that packs more punch” (Best Fit)
“Catchy-as-hell, fuzzed up indie pop” (Clash)
“A real one to watch” (Crack In the Road)
Fresh off the back of her heavily coveted single ‘Call Shotgun’, a release that landed her praise at The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, BBC Radio 1, 6Music as well as a spot as BBC Introducing’s Track Of The Week, Isle Of Wight native Lauran Hibberd returns with the release of her new cut ‘What Do Girls Want?’ due out on the 12thOctober via Be-Known Music.
Continuing her brand of off-kilter indie-pop, ‘What Do Girls Want?’ channels the tongue-in-cheek lyrical flow of Courtney Barnett, as she soars through energetic guitar riffs and ironical content to deliver a wonderfully catchy return to the scene.
With influences stemming from bands like Weezer, the frontwoman’s latest single is a stern slap in the face for conventional attitudes. Treading her own path in the industry, this latest release cements her as one of the most exciting and divisive new names in British’s indie music.
Speaking about the new single, Hibberd explained, “For me, ‘What Do Girls Want?’ is a good punch to the mouth. It’s sarcastic, and bleakly honest. It highlights what it feels like to be young, and obsesses over the ideas that come with being just that.”
Lauran Hibberd will finish the year out with a number of UK live shows to support the new release, before hitting the festival circuit next year. ‘What Do Girls Want?’ will be released on the 12th October via Be-Known Music.
