Isle Of Wight’s resident slacker pop queen Lauran Hibberd’s forthcoming debut LP ‘Garageband Superstar’ comes exclusively pressed to animated zoetrope picture disc via Blood Records. Featuring psych-videos of her dog 'Jango' the zoetrope comes signed by Lauren, hand-numbered to order and limited to 500 copies.
"You know when you are so insecure but also sure enough of yourself to attempt to rap - yeah, me neither”, Hibberd remarks. “This song was such a turning point for me writing wise, it solidified the album for me early on. It’s a track about being stuck in your own head, I’ve struggled a lot mentally being a very small pawn on the very big chess board that is the music industry and I think this is the most honest I’ve ever been about it in a track. Saying that, writing it has helped me jump right out of the fish bowl, now I feel more confident and am having more fun than ever."
Signalling the newest addition to her thrilling catalogue of adrenaline-fuelled hits, ‘I’m Insecure’ follows previous album teaser ‘Step Mum’ earlier this month, alongside news of her debut album tour, and sees the indie sensation partner once again with revered producer Larry Hibbitt (Nothing but Thieves, Don Broco, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Sea Girls), as her spectacular ascent towards the upper echelons of the indie landscape gathers further pace.
Brimming with charisma and satire-fuelled anthems, the DIY Magazine Class of 2022 star’s remarkable potential is reinforced by the groundswell of support across the press landscape (The Guardian, The Times, NME, The Line Of Best Fit, Dork, DIY, Billboard, Consequence of Sound, NYLON, Clash, Gigwise, Kerrang, Rock Sound, Upset) over the last few years, as well as significant praise across the BBC Radio 1 (Clara Amfo, Jack Saunders, Gemma Bradley) and BBC 6 Music (Chris Hawkins) airwaves, as she tackles the next phase in her thrilling development.
Fresh from nationwide dates supporting chart-toppers The Snuts and Stand Atlantic, as well as a sold-out 2021 UK headline tour, the enigmatic musician’s raucous live show has already seen her earn impressive support tours with Hippo Campus and The Regrettes in recent times. Earmarked for several prominent slots throughout the summer festival season (sharing stages with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Everything Everything and Sundara Karma), Hibberd will also be hitting the road this autumn to coincide with the release of her debut album.
Please note that Blood Records is a pre-ordering platform and this record is due for release on August 19th 2022. All images for illustrative purposes.
