Laurel – Fire Breather

avatars-000057090301-e4n6um-t500x500We’ve loved Laurel for quite some time now, not least because her Twitter stream is one of the most consistently hilarious of any new artiste. But while Ms Arnell-Cullen doesn’t take herself too seriously online, it’s the opposite for her music. In a fair world, new (and free) download Fire Breather should make a lot more people sit up and take note of her as more than just a pseudo-Lana Del Rey; it’s a track layered with sumptuous beauty, as dark as BANKS and just as fantastic. This is the real deal, people. You heard it here first.
