"...an exploratory, sonically beautiful return..." - Clash
Idiosyncratic singer-songwriter Laura Elvin bewilders and enlightens with her new single Wonder, out now.
The overall theme is one of empowerment. Wonder questions whether, as we grow, we have left behind our imaginative nature and how Laura’s imagination was re-inspired. Performed on a custom built music box, Elvin’s haunting, operatic vocal takes centre stage from the offset, sounding akin to the likes of Florence Welch or Kate Bush’s powerful, unique tone. The use of the music box introduces a intricate simplicity to the song, allowing Elvin to create something truly spellbinding.
Born in Camden to classical music aficionados, ELVIN grew up hearing the timeless tones of the living room piano mingle with the edgier sounds coming in through the window. After steadily gaining support over the years, ELVIN has gone on to become a fully autonomous artist and producer. Fusing elements of jazz, classical, pop and rock, her multiple talents soon began to capture the attention of music heavyweights. ELVIN’s previous release Wonder received praise from a number of well-regarded publications including Impose Magazine, GIGsoup and Female First to name but a few.
ELVIN’s concept EP The Garden is due for release in 2019. Don’t miss the chance to be whisked away into her magical world and experience her unique blend of alt-pop for yourselves.
Wonder is out now.
