Rising UK star LAUREL has today released the official music video for ‘Same Mistakes’, taken from her incredible debut album ‘DOGVIOLET’, out August 24 on Counter Records. ‘Same Mistakes’ was released alongside ‘Crave’ as an A/A single, with the two new tracks showcasing the sublime vocals and raw guitars of the evocative and effortless 12 track LP.
The gritty, driving blues of ‘Same Mistakes’ is paired with a stunning moving portrait of LAUREL shot in Paris on Super 8 filmby Kimbra Audrey and edited by LAUREL. Last week LAUREL played a breathtaking Radio 1 Maida Vale session for Huw Stephens
First single ‘Lovesick’ set the tone for ‘DOGVIOLET’, with open, sparse production revealing LAUREL’s effortlessly emotive voice and the vintage warmth of her guitar playing. Other album highlights include spellbinding live favourite ‘Life Worth Living’, the infectiously wounded ‘Adored’, the soaring ‘Crave’ and bitingly intense track ‘Sun King’.
Already receiving support from Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart, John Kennedy, Apple Music, Spotify, The Guardian, Wonderland and I-D Magazine, as well as partnerships with Burberry, Ellesse, Levis and Vans, LAUREL heads out on a UK and European tour this autumn.
