steveinsocal "...another addictive mix of Laura's by now trademark contrasting musical styles. And while that air of menace is never too far way, the orchestration of "Butterflies" is absolutely bewitching..."

Juju Sophie Laura. Laura. This is the work of an artist who works so bloody hard at what she does that you can do nothing else but respect her. For this new EP she has made videos for each song, sat down and learned the software, all by herself. Amazing. Incredible even. Most of the time she records by herself but it is great to hear some live tracks with a full blown sound. It opens up her art and finds a great new depth. Very punk and very different from the dream world of Butterflies. Favorite track: Minefields (Live from Lightship95).

Butterflies 03:01
Butterflies Lead me with your lovely lies With lonely lips and heavy hips I've tried But I'll always lose to butterflies But I don't mind I'm not wasting my time And though I won't be fine I'll find a way in I'll find a way in Butterflies Lead me with your lovely lies With open seams and scattered dreams I've tried Bye bye bye

Delete 03:51
Don't stop Pass by We didn’t know that we’d survive A simple start I wasn't expecting to fly I’d like to delete myself Don't like to repeat myself I’d like to delete myself Don't like to repeat myself It's no But don’t go Everyone’s getting old so quickly, what are we gonna do with this now I’m so tired I wasn’t thinking about kids and the future I’d like to delete myself Don't like to repeat myself I’d like to delete myself Don't like to repeat myself Ohhh Don’t stop the clock Don’t mention the time Eyes front and we’ll all be fine Some sorry state You left me in Tearstained, scuffed and dazzling I’d like to delete myself Don't like to repeat myself I’d like to delete myself Don't like to repeat myself

Stranger. Lover. Suck air and water Minefields and murder His breath I long for I'm in the wrong place, my stomach is sick As I flounder around trying not to lose sight of it Nothing feels right – he's too far away Let the planets collide cos there's no point in fighting them now Ice flows through my veins Hot love will soothe me Steep hills and slate skies My eyes in your eyes I'm in the wrong place, my stomach is sick As I flounder around trying not to lose sight of it Nothing feels right – he's too far away Let the planets collide cos there's no point in fighting them now My eyes in your eyes I'm in the wrong place, my stomach is sick As I flounder around trying not to lose sight of it Nothing feels right – he's too far away Let the planets collide cos there's no point in fighting them... credits

In this boat I look for signs of morning In these sails a bond I cannot keep In this heart I hear a siren calling Set to sea I turn my salty cheek Don't wake up Don't cry out In these arms I hope for sweet surrender In these veins I hunt for poetry In this vessel floating to the future Weeping weather fills the cold grey sea Don't wake up Don't cry out Don't make a sound Let tempest come His won't be done Illuminate my arrow In this boat is all we ever needed In this storm I know we will not drown In this battleship far from homeland Rock this body I'll ride the wave back down Don't wake up Don't cry out Don't make a sound Confusion go - protect my home On land or sea they won't take me Let tempest come His won't be done Illuminate my arrow You are an anchor I am a wave

Sometimes I’m only talking to myself Yeah I know you’re getting worried for my health Leave it I’m just a solitary soul Sick of these pleasantries All right You can watch as I dissolve But when I wake I want you here to have to hold You’re so tired of these Drama queen tendencies So I face my pretty tragedies I contrive, survive Little battles in my mind Yeah I make my exit strategy I deny, I don't try, I don't try You say there’s nothing to fight Ohoh but sometimes All I can do is scream fire! fire! fire! Squealing and wolfbiting I’m tearing skin got to push all the good back in And so I face my pretty tragedies I contrive, survive Little battles in my mind Yeah I make my exit strategy I deny, I don't try, I don't try Blood and treasure I love, I lose Delivering The blackest bruise Saving face Let’s beat retreat Withdrawal doesn’t mean defeat

about

A six song, six video audiovisual extravaganza!

Featuring double A side singles "Butterflies" and "Delete", taken from my second album "Little Battles", plus four live versions of album tracks "Butterflies", "Exit Strategy", "In This Boat" and "Minefields" performed with The Olympians, my shadowy backing band featuring members of Hysterical Injury, Gabby Young and Other Animals, Talk In Colour, Dana Jade and Djevara.

Six videos accompany the EP - two brand new promos for the double A sides shot in summer 2013 and four never-before-seen live performance videos shot on a pink boat moored on the Thames.

Order the EP in its entirety to get the six video bundle plus extras or cherry pick your favourite audio. The live videos for "Minefields" and "Exit Strategy" will remain exclusive to this EP until at least 2014.
