On Thursday and Friday last week she supported Years & Years at their two sold out shows at London’s Heaven.
Laura says – “The Years&Years shows were so much fun; Heaven is a really cool venue and the audiences on both nights were ready to have a good time and welcomed me warmly. When covering ‘King’, I chose to mash it up with ‘Zephyr Song’ by Red Hot Chili Peppers because both, to me, speak of addiction and the longing to be free. What they really mean, I do not know – but I was inspired by the lyrics of both. ‘Don’t you remember how I used to like being on the line/I am a king under your control’ (King – Years and Years) & ‘Picking up, but not too strong for you/ Take a piece and pass it on/What a night to fly my kite on’ – (RHCP- The Zephyr Song). Together they make awesome sense and I love doing mashups – it’s a challenge to combine the stories of two songs.
In celebration of this and the fact that Years & Years have the No. 1 single this week with ‘King’ – Laura has recorded a very special mash up of ‘King’ and Red Hot Chilli Peppers, ‘The Zephyr Song’, check it out here –
