Fast becoming a key figure within the emerging indie elite, slacker-pop sensation Lauran Hibberd shares her satire-fuelled, anthem-stacked Goober EP, which was released last month.

“Goober has been a long time in the making”, explains the enigmatic figure. “It’s survived a global pandemic and many mood swings from me. These tracks all summarise what I’ve been thinking over the last twelve months. I hope for your sake, you can’t relate haha!”

Showcasing several explosive additions to an ever-growing back catalogue, the EP sees Hibberd partner with esteemed producer Suzy Shinn (Weezer, Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, Dua Lipa) for recent cuts How Am I Still Alive? (with The Regrettes’ Lydia Night) and Bleugh, in addition to pop-rock belter Boy Bye, as she aims to capitalise on the huge wave of momentum generated over the last twelve months.

With glittering acclaim circulating throughout the tastemaker community (NME, The Line Of Best Fit, Dork, DIY, Billboard, NYLON, Clash, Gigwise, Upset), and significant praise across the BBC Radio 1 airwaves (Annie Mac, Jack Saunders, Gemma Bradley), Hibberd’s status continues to grow ahead of the record’s release, and with an autumn UK headline tour to come, she’s certainly primed to take full advantage.
