ALBUM REVIEW: Lauran Hibberd – Garageband Superstar | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Virgin Music

Released: 19.08.22






Prolific songwriter Lauran Hibberd has finally put together an album that is full of smart and sometimes sarcastic lyrics, over the top of bouncy guitar-led pop rock. It is a formula that works: Lauran sings about life and the tsunami of happy music crashes over the listener. The result is a winning combination that should prove popular. By the same token I am sure that it will annoy the music snobs and I love it more for that.

Apart from the last track, each dose of Lauran’s thoughts run under four-minutes, and so it never overstays its welcome. With infectious energy, catchy lyrics and a crisp production from Larry Hibbitt, Lauran has created a confident debut.
