Lauran Hibberd has kicked off 2020 with pulsating new single ‘Bang Bang Bang’ as the slacker pop queen has positioned herself at the forefront of the emerging indie landscape.
Primed to capitalise on a whirlwind twelve months since she was named as ICM Ones To Watch 2019 artist, the hotly-tipped Isle Of Wight native delves further into her indie rock cannon, producing her boldest release to date.
The track is a charisma-fuelled, sing-along-inducing anthem designed for bigger audiences and bigger stages. Lauran Hibberd has amplified her potential and ramped up expectations, sparking comparisons to contemporaries including Phoebe Bridgers and Weezer.
Having spent the majority of 2019 on the road, notching up extensive UK/EU support tours alongside US heavyweights Hippo Campus and The Regrettes, in addition to her debut appearance on Glastonbury’s BBC Introducing stage, Hibberd’s dazzling live show continues to woo audiences, and with a second UK headline tour lined up next month, her remarkable rise shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.
Discussing her first release of the year, Hibberd explained: “‘Bang Bang Bang’ is my ode to the teenage girl. It’s built for the prom scene in ’10 Things I Hate About You’.
“It’s the cycle of going back to the same person even when you know you shouldn’t and I guess the fallout of all of that”.
