Lauren Horton – ‘Postcard Guy’
Sydney songstress Lauren Horton’s folky blend of jazz and french-pop makes me want to cut the crusts off cucumber sandwiches and spend sun-dappled afternoons in a row boat drinking Pimms. There’s a leisurely decadence about her quirky, syncopated vocals, which has made her musings the perfect soundtrack to recent icicle days spent daydreaming about a life post-exams, a house with central heating, and a Melbourne without swine flu.
‘Postcard Guy’ is off Lauren’s debut EP There will be Static. Sydneysiders can amble down to the EP Launch at the OAF, next Wednesday 17 June. Lauren will take the stage with accompanying instrumentals from The Clockwork Trumpets, and support from Sui Zhen and Steve Smyth.
