‘Life Worth Living’
Southampton-raised, 21 year old London-based singer, songwriter and producer Laurel Arnell-Cullen has today revealed her brand new song ‘Life Worth Living’ from the forthcoming Theia Recordings release, after time away concentrating on producing her debut album.
‘Life Worth Living’ was solely written, recorded, produced and performed by LAUREL in her East London bedroom based studio. It follow’s two EPs, ‘To The Hills’ and ‘Holy Water’ and the release of single Blue Blood, which LAUREL released in the summer last year. She posted the song several years earlier on Soundcloud as an unknown teenager, which spiked huge industry and blog interest, described as:
‘It’s an intoxicating cocktail of pop nous, bearing the DNA of folk at its finest’ – The Line Of Best Fit
‘mix of pop nous with emotion bearing traits of folk’ – The Guardian
‘The new face of British alt-pop’ – Vogue
‘England’s Alt-Pop teen with some serious vocal chops’ – Noisey
‘If you’re tired of that upbeat, sugary indie pop, here’s your remedy’ – Pigeons and Planes
LAUREL has been busy touring and playing numerous UK festivals including, The Great Escape, Dot to Dot, Bestival, and Radio 1’s Big Weekend. LAUREL also played her first U.S shows at The Troubadour in LA, KCRW’s “School Night” in LA & New York, Northside Festival in New York and NXNE in Toronto.
With a debut album scheduled for late 2016, ‘Life Worth Living’ further enhances LAUREL’s position as a phenomenal new talent, mixing strong hook based electronic production with striking yet touching songwriting and powerfully enchanting vocals.
