Watch: Laurel – Hurricane

Laurel has followed up the release of 'San Francisco' with a brand new song and video for 'Hurricane'.

Laurel is a British artist that has been on my radar ever since hearing her song 'Life Worth Living' 6 months ago. Hurricane is a track that takes a slightly different approach to some of her other material with more of a folk-rock vibe to it. What it does keep is that vintage style that Laurel seamlessly allows flow throughout her songs.

The video follows on in a similar style to the song with its stop motion-like approach giving us a look at Laurel in some of her favourite spots in London, a location that has inspired a lot of her writing.

"My EP seems to have accidentally shaped somewhat of a story that has happened in my life recently—even the track listing pans everything out from the start to the end. “Hurricane” was somewhere near the start of this, where things started to get a little messed up, but, under the influence of love, you still thought everything was beautiful. In that young angst mindset we often get ourselves in believing the torment is half of the loving. Not to say it’s not a happy song though, there’s some beauty in knowing that some people will always find their way back to one another."

Hurricane is taken from Laurel's upcoming PARK EP which is set for release in November.
