Southampton based four-piece Lighten Up Laura gained all-round positive feedback for their 2017 release Acting Your Age. The EP brought the band to life, with gripping and infectious tracks driven with talent and passion. Since then, Lighten Up Laura have been on an upward journey, releasing ‘Take Your Shirt Off’ and ‘Missed The Boat’ as official music videos, putting on shows and ultimately enjoying the Acting Your Age era. Although, the band has posted about working on new material. In a recent Instagram post, Lighten Up Laura say “we’re writing new bangers for you lovely people.”
Made up of students studying music production at University, Lighten Up Laura have massive talent that has been proved in their already established sound that Acting Your Age displayed. With each musician having stand-out performances on their previous EP, it’s an exciting time to be following this up and coming band that keep on growing. Dubbing themselves as ‘unnecessarily loud and fast-paced,’ Lighten Up Laura are successful in delivering their end of the bargain. If you missed the alternative rock bands previous EP, it’s available on Spotify here, and it’s definitely worth listening to. While brief, the portfolio of music that the band currently have is impressive and taking to sounds such as Incubus, Foo Fighters and Placebo.
