Lauran Hibberd is returning this July for her second EP ‘Goober’, which follows 2019’s ‘Everything is Dogs’. The announcement follows the fresh pop-punk-esque single ‘How Am I Still Alive?’, a collab with Lydia Night of fellow rockers The Regrettes. Lauran chats about artist team-ups, staying sane while living with your parents, and her infamous façade of dry wit.
How’s it been living at home with your parents?
You know, same old. Mum’s fine, dad’s fine, they just keep telling me to stop making noise past 10pm. Rock’n’roll!
Has chatting to fellow musicians kept you sane in lockdown (number three)?
Definitely, I think it’s super easy to fall into the trap of thinking you’re the only one feeling a certain way, and it’s really comforting to know that everyone else is also in loads of pain and struggling; I weirdly find comfort in that. Me and Zuzu gas each other up a lot, so it’s good for both of us.
