laurel Park (12", £8.75)label: Counter Records
Southampton-raised, 22 year old London-based singer, songwriter and producer Laurel Arnell-Cullen releases her ‘Park’ EP with iconic English independent label Counter Records. ‘Park’ was written, performed, recorded, produced and mixed by Laurel in her East London bedroom based studio. Lead track ‘Hurricane’ demonstrates a maturity of sound beyond her 22 years, her breathy vocals sitting atop exquisite melodies with heartfelt, intimate delivery. With a debut album scheduled for early 2017, ‘Park’ further enhances Laurel’s position as a phenomenal new talent, mixing raw organic production with striking yet touching songwriting and powerfully enchanting vocals. ‘Park’ follows the release of singles ‘Life Worth Living’ and ‘San Francisco’, which Laurel released on her label Theia earlier in the year. The tracks saw her garner a wealth of support from Annie Mac and Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1), Zane Lowe (Beats 1), The New York Times, The Guardian, i-D, DIY, The Line Of Best Fit and many more.
