London Town EP
How perfectly delightful. Laura comes armed only with an acoustic (which is probably ‘battered’ – acoustics always are) and a lovely Harriet-from-The-Sundays way with enunciation. The title track is the high point, positively agonised with heartache and packing some choice lyrical self-harm (“How is it now/Back in London town/Where you let me down?”) that will resonate with anyone who has wept themselves to sleep in this benighted, dreadful city.
