Just when you think you've wrapped your head around Laura's newest sound, she throws you a curveball. "The Creeps" is the heaviest song of her new material and a brilliant showcase of new band members Alex MacRae (Sons Of Rico), Kelly Dingeldei (Loobs) and James Trewenack (Glass Diamonds). Expect strong AC/DC vibes.

"I think The Creeps is pretty relatable content. It's just a simple song about being irritated that an ex-lover can still have a huge effect on you when you see them, no matter how many years have passed or how much water is under the bridge. The feeling I'm describing is closer to heebie jeebies than the creeps, but I didn't want this song to sound like that Roy Orbison song "Ooby Dooby" so I settled on "the creeps" as a close enough description - Laura

Laura's forthcoming fourth album "Scared of You" is due for release in March 2019.



When I'm out getting dinners
Minding my own damn business
Out on the town seeing a show

It's not for want of trying
It's not like I'm still crying
But every time I see you,
You give me the creeps

I wish that I could hide it
The pain that you provided
comes flooding back and I can't speak

I force awful exchanges
with all surrounding strangers
before I speak to you cos you give me the creeps

Why doesn't time heal all unpleasant?
Take back your gift of omnipresent

These days I love another
This shame still makes me shudder
I wish it wouldn't hang around.

There's something broken in me
I guess I need therapy...if after five long years,
you still give me the creeps.
