When Lauran Hibberd released her debut EP in September, I can’t have been alone in thinking that was that for 2019, expecting something of a protracted wait for new material.
This assumption has proven false – and gratefully so – as the Isle of Wight native delivers a super new single in the shape of ‘Sweat Patch’. Hibberd has built a well earned rep for irresistible, fuzz-filled indie pop and even with a cursory glance at her recent output, it is easy to see why. ‘Sweat Patch’ is a delight and comes with all the traits we’ve come to expect from Hibberd. It is full of fuzzed up heavy guitar riffs, sarcastic lyrics, slacker vibes and that gloriously hooky pop allure. We knew it already but ‘Sweat Patch’ adds more weight to her burgeoning reputation as a talent to pay attention to.
Listen to ‘Sweat Patch’ below now – hopefully Lauran Hibberd will take s trip back over to this side of the Irish Sea sometime in the near future.
