8/10 Heston Chumley Customer review, 27th July 2017
One of the better releases from Sunday Best Recordings in the last few years.
Putting the sound of Laurence Galpin (Laucan) into words is a tough ask. Having written the album over a period of around 18 months with the accomplished Grasscut and with an EP teased out in the proceedings to the album, there was strangely a lack of attention being paid towards the young Lewes born singer. This will definitely be a 'how did we miss that' album for many listeners for years to come. Strikingly eery harmonies carefully hung over indulgent strings, the entire album feels like a soundtrack to a film you've never seen but most definitely want to.
As ambitious as it is beautiful, I would recommend you get to grips with this debut offering from Laucan as I expect the next few will be garnering a lot more attention.
