Sydney’s Laura Imbruglia is finally returning from a two year writing/recording hiatus to deliver her second album The Lighter Side Of… (due for release April 2nd thru Ready Freddie Records/MGM).
Sarcastically titled, this new release covers some serious heartbreak territory with Lauras signature wit in place to keep things from tipping too far into the land of grim. Switching between dark country (‘When It All Falls Apart’ – recently heard getting spins on JJJ), sparse atmospheric gloom (‘Love or Cancer’, ‘Living on Light’) and shimmering power pop (‘Pauly’) with ease, The Lighter Side Of… showcases Lauras versatility, growth and unique song-writing smarts.
Laura will be playing two special shows to launch the album, playing with a full band featuring longtime bass player Stiff, Ben James (Talons) on drums and Nick Huggins, who produced the new record, on 2nd geetar! You can expect a bit of country, some power pop, some dark moody stuff and a good serving of grindcore (not really).
