Laura Doggett thrust herself into the limelight with the assistance of Sohn and her ‘debut’ track Phoenix, although regular readers of Breaking More Waves will know that’s she’s been writing and recording material for some time before this. However, Phoenix may well prove to be a red herring – certainly having seen Laura play live a couple of times we’d suggest that the rest of her songs are a less likely to grab the affiliation of the blogosphere; not because they’re not worth your time (they are) but because Laura’s sound isn’t fitting in the predominant mould of what many blogs feature – namely electronic / r ‘n’ b / hip-hop / pop or indie rock n roll of its various sources. If anything Laura's material is a little more adult mainstream (and that is no criticism when the quality is there).
Moonshine (a track which until Phoenix was released was streaming on her Soundcloud and has now reappeared ) is a good example of this. It's all about when life / troubles get a little bit too much and some escapism is required. It’s a dreamy song that perfectly fits that moment late at night when you just need to kick back and drift away; let Laura’s voice take you on that journey.
