Lauran Hibberd is teasing her upcoming EP with a new video.

Her ‘Goober’ EP is set for release on 30th July, featuring lead single, and teaser track, ‘How Am I Still Alive?’, a collab with previous touring pal The Regrettes’ Lydia Night.

“Doing a collaboration was something I’d always wanted to do,” she says. “I’ve always felt it really important to work together with similar artists instead of working against them, especially in these times. I am super stoked to have Lydia (Night) sing on the track; I toured with The Regrettes in 2019 and THEY ROCK. It was so much fun, and I took so much from it, and Lydia is bad ass so YEAH!

“‘How Am I Still Alive?’ toys with the bleakness of everyday life and makes it sound more entertaining than it actually is. Michael (Cera) becomes the focus point of getting through the mundane but plays on the idea of if I actually had him I probably wouldn’t want him anyway. That, and the everyday celebration of making it through another day pretty much sums up the last year of my life.”

Of the new clip, she adds: “The video is a collection of (lockdown available) ideas, a transatlantic home video with animation seemed to be the only way we could get Lydia and I side by side. It’s based on documenting your every sleepless move (in the home video footage), whilst having your maddest thoughts and dreams (in the animation). I think it summarises how weird it is to live in a shut down world right now and where our minds go throughout.”
