Laura Pergolizzi, the Long Island singer songwriter better known as LP, just gave us a double dose of audio visual bliss by dropping two music videos at once. I was an immediate fan of this striking artist from the very first moment I encountered her voice close to three years ago. I don’t think there’s many artists out there with a comparable sound when it comes to her scratchy emotive delivery and her immaculate range, stretching from deep resonating to lofty spry. Watch LP strum and coo away in the video for sooty chugging Other People above, then watch the video for passionately blazing Tightrope below. LP’s 2016 EP Death Valley is available for purchase from iTunes.
“Before we enter this new chapter, I want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU. Thank you to my family, my friends, and all of our WTM tribe out there for your patience and understanding. After 6 years on the road, it was finally time to take a deep breath and catch up on life, and you allowed us to do that. I’ve struggled with depression, mended broken relationships and a broken shoulder, and rediscovered this brotherhood I have with my bandmates. I didn’t know how to exist off of a stage or outside a studio, but after taking this time for myself, I am now the happiest and healthiest I have ever been. It’s finally time to share what we have been working on and I have never felt more connected to a piece of music than I do right now. I hope you dig it and I can’t wait to see you at a show.” - @ kevinray
