London-based electro-cinematic artist Laura Jae has released her new track “Underwater” which premiered via Wonderland. Laura has previously had rave reviews from the likes of I-D and The Guardian for her EP Silver Lined Hearts, Laura says of her new track:
“’Underwater’ was inspired by feeling overwhelmed with multiple changes in my life. I was having problems communicating in a relationship I was in at the time and felt I was sinking into nothingness with no emotional support. This song represents a search for freedom”.
Having taken time out recently, Laura’s new material sees a mature development and a new found authentic sound. The press release says:
“Fusing the influences of artists as wide-ranging as Santigold, The Knife, Kate Bush and Bjork, Laura’s new material sees her team up with fellow London-based songwriter Dele Ladimeji, who has previously penned for Jay Sean and Natasha Bedingfield and is renowned for his work in the Japanese music industry. Merging his classic and emotive take on songwriting with her own fresh and blossoming style, ‘Underwater’ also continues Laura’s collaboration with long-time producer and friend Amour. Complemented by his ethereal, textured production and familiar shimmering electronics, the infectious track is interspersed with dark, bassy beats and soft retro drums, all carried by Jae’s unwavering vocals”.
