Laura Groves ‘Committed Language’

1109781

There is something utterly enchanting about Laura Grove’s new song ‘Committed Language’.  A choice cut off her brilliant new EP of the same name, the track is straightforward storytelling at it’s best – with Grove’s commanding vocals taking the lead over lush, thoughtful production.

The London singer has been around for a while now. First making her name under Blue Rose, Grove’s has ditched the moniker along with the folk pop prose for a more realised and confident sound.

On ‘Committed Language’ Groves conjures up images of prolific female songwriters of the past -Kate Bush, Stevie Nicks  Suzanne Vega and  PJ Harvey – the kind of musicians with remarkable vocal chops, with a uncanny knack for writing beautiful and moving songs.

The instrumentation is equally entrancing, with off beat synths and drum patterns giving the song a distinct 70s tone. Taking with Dazed and Confused magazine, she told them how 70’s songwriting had influenced her craft: “I do love a lot of ’70s songwriting – I like the idea of being adventurous with harmony and rhythm but still trying to craft a pop song out of it.”

She went on to take about how the EP came to fruition, “I was feeling in quite a state of flux; a lot of things in my life were changing and I wanted to make something quite direct and succinct as a sort of antidote to that. The previous EP was more about creating a reflective and dream-like atmosphere. ”

The ‘Committed Language’ EP is out now through DEEK Records.
