“Avant-pop accelerator blends offshoots of PC Music exploration with trap…vivid and vivacious” – CLASH
“Laurel has brought out all the stops” – Notion”Atmospheric trap-slash-hyperpop aesthetics…gloriously satisfying” – Dork
“A fizzing moment of dark, brooding future-alt-hyperpop” – Upset
Produced by Jay Flew, mixed by Manon Grandjean (Flo, AJ Tracey, Cat Burns) and mastered by Matt Colton (FKA Twigs, Blood Orange and Aphex Twin), ‘LIKE THAT’ is another testament to Laurel’s endless and effortless creative approach to music and genre. A kinetic blend of stuttering electronics, grooving hip-hop beats and glistening hyperpop synths, the outcome is euphoric when partnered with Laurel’s tender vocal and honest lyrics.
“”LIKE THAT” is about the experience of having a friend that struggles with their mental health. It’s a sad but heartfelt love song, showing how depression not only hurts the person dealing with it, but also the people who are the closest to them.” – Laurel Smith
