Laura Lee Lovely
From a DIY set-up, Laura Lee Lovely has created some of the most expansive, individual pop to come out of New Zealand. It’s dreamy and atmospheric with her rich, multi-layered vocals dripping from the surfaces.
Lovely’s career has gone from strength to strength since her roots in shoegaze band O’LOVELY, seeing her open for the likes of indie-rocker Tasha Saltana, and art-pop artist Chelsea Jade. She has created gutsy self-produced videos; Faster includes guerrilla footage of her dancing with wild abandon in Christchurch’s earthquake shattered stadium. It feels like a bold statement of intent – breaking out of the box with her own brand of pop for dreamers.
