TUNE Laura Misch - Blue Dot
Laura Misch returns with an exclusive new track ‘Blue Dot' from her forthcoming mini-LP Lonely City which is out May 3rd. Laura has been working with city sounds and embedded a lot of phone recordings into this project. The South London Jazz favourite also announces her upcoming project Lonely City. Laura is set to do a string of live dates including The Great Escape.
Saxophonist, producer and singer-songwriter Laura Misch is gradually defining her sound through the synthesis of her two main voices - saxophone and vocals. Knitting together these isometric components by means of explorative productions which nod ever further to the hallmarks of electronic music; Laura’s fusion of jazz textures, beats and searching soundscapes have placed her peacefully landlocked between many bubbling scenes within the south London locale.
Laura released her first self produced LP Playground in May 2017, from which the support gained saw her appear live on BBC 6 in session with Gilles Peterson, with further radio plays on BBC Radio 1 and Jazz FM.
This was followed up by the deep and enveloping single ‘Lagoon’ in February 2018 premiered on Toronto based music knowledge hub Music is My Sanctuary; seeing her supporters grow with plays from the likes of Phil Taggart and Jamie Cullum on BBC Radio 1 & 2 alike.
After a successful first UK headline tour in February 2018, Laura took her one-woman show across Europe supporting Tom Misch, before stunning a sold out Elgar Room at the Royal Albert Hall in April. The past summer has seen Laura’s name featured in many festival line-ups including End Of The Road, Visions, All Points East, Meadows In The Mountains & Oslo Jazz festival. She then capped this off supporting Texan three-piece Khruangbin in their European tour in October.
Having recently released latest single ‘I Adore’, a rework which she describes as being inspired by her “time recording sounds in nature”; Laura continues to find her own musical vocabulary as she works towards finishing the new album, playing “warm rich analogue tones on sax and manipulate[ing] them through technology to expand, distort and express” how she feels.
