Pre-order ‘Garageband Superstar’ here. “It felt right to film it here, on the windiest day of the year. Lauran Hibberd is still busy running a 5k as she shares her music video for the lead single taken from her forthcoming debut album. The Isle of Wight slacker pop queen is exploring her “self-destructive ideals” with help from Limp Bizkit’s DJ Lethal, who features on the track. “The track itself is all about that gravitational pull to the place you grew up even though everyone has already left it. Never thought someone would fly from Berlin to film my prancing around ryde esplanade but I rate it.”
