Laura Groves “Dream Story”
So here’s the part where I compare London singer/producer Laura Groves to Grimes and Kate Bush. It’s unavoidable. She has the electro-soporano voice of Grimes combined with the organic quality of Kate Bush at her witchiest. Together she creates a sound that’s warm in its familiarity but just unique enough to make the sound her own. With two EPs under her belt, Groves has been gradually climbing within the music blogosphere, and her recent EP, Committed Language, proves that there’s more to Groves than her similar-sounding inspirations. “Dream Story” in particular is an ethereal track that sways along until it explodes with powder and fairy dust, unleashing a bewitching chorus that’ll have you twirling your embroidered hoop skirt (it’s okay, we won’t tell anyone). You can stream the whole EP via Bandcamp.
