Fresh off the back of her heavily coveted single ‘Call Shotgun’, a release that landed her praise at The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, BBC Radio 1, 6Music as well as a spot as BBC Introducing’s Track Of The Week, Isle Of Wight native Lauran Hibberd returns with the release of her new cut ‘What Do Girls Want?’ due out on the 12th October via Be-Known Music.
Continuing her brand of off-kilter indie-pop, ‘What Do Girls Want?’ channels the tongue-in-cheek lyrical flow of Courtney Barnett, as she soars through energetic guitar riffs and ironical content to deliver a wonderfully catchy return to the scene.
With influences stemming from bands like Weezer, the frontwoman’s latest single is a stern slap in the face for conventional attitudes. Treading her own path in the industry, this latest release cements her as one of the most exciting and divisive new names in British’s indie music.
Speaking about the new single, Hibberd explained, “For me, ‘What Do Girls Want?’ is a good punch to the mouth. It’s sarcastic, and bleakly honest. It highlights what it feels like to be young, and obsesses over the ideas that come with being just that.”
“Filmed on the Isle of Wight, by some of my favourite people featuring more of my favourite people. ‘What Do Girls Want?’ wish they could skate and make a bedroom in the back of a Citroen Berlingo? Maybe not, but that’s just me. This was so much fun to film, and locks in on the character I hope the track has. Huge thanks to Skinny Mammoth Productions, Wight Trash Skateboards, Martha Egg, Doug Richards and Dougie Newell.”
Lauran Hibberd will finish the year out with a number of UK live shows to support the new release, before hitting the festival circuit next year. ‘What Do Girls Want?’ will be released on the 12th October via Be-Known Music.
