——– Our performer this month is LAURE, aka 24 year-old Laurence Morgan, is a chameleonic indie pop artist utilising his love of harmony to make multiple clones of himself until it’s far too late.

With a musical background highlighted by choral singing, traditional folk tunes and classical composition, what emerges is a mixture of dense, euphoric harmonies and occasionally unorthodox pop song structures, with lyrics steeped in playful honesty and many, many rhymes.
