Lauran Hibberd’s new record is a catalogue of adrenaline-fuelled hits.
‘Still Running’ projects her quarter-life crisis, while the hilariously honest and confident ‘Hot Boys’ sees her shamelessly list off all the “hot boys” she encounters in her day to day life. This debut resets the narrative on slacker pop; brimming with charisma and satire-fuelled anthems, it comes as no surprise when she declares on the title-track that she was recognised by “a couple strangers on the Megabus.”
With ‘Garageband Superstar’, there will be plenty more of that. ■ Phoebe De Angelis
