There is Nothing “Bleugh” About Lauran Hibberd

UK sensation Lauran Hibberd dropped another piece off her forthcoming EP Goober, the new single “Bleugh.”

Lauran Gets Some Things off her Chest

The 23-year-old singer-songwriter from the Isle of Wight is gearing up to release her new EP, Goober, in July. It will be her first body of work since 2019’s Everything Is Dogs EP. Since then, her sound has progressed. Lauran has gotten louder with each release, with “Bleugh” arriving as the singer’s most ferocious effort yet.

Lauran kicks out her frustrations on the song about falling for people that you soon realize are the kind of folk you don’t particularly want in your life. Yet, you still find yourself getting sucked in. The track is explosive. It sees Lauran get some things off her chest that have been eating her up inside for far too long.

“‘Bleugh’ is the only sound that sums up my adult reaction to my pre-naive self”, she explains in a statement. “It’s about always being attracted to people who’ve nothing going on, nothing to offer you. Yet, it’s that hamster wheel you can’t quite jump off.”

“You’ll probably find these people in bands called something like ‘broken cyclists’ or better yet in moody solo projects called something pretentious like ‘bora boring’. It’s my favorite track of mine, and I’ve been sitting on and incubating this girl for a while. It feels really good shouting ‘Bleugh’ btw, I recommend you try it out.”

“Bleugh” Sets the Ground for Goober

On “Bleugh,” Lauran takes part in what feels like a session of primal scream therapy, and it makes for an exhilarating listen. Her forthcoming EP is shaping up to be a barnstormer as she continues to enhance her sound and turn the decibels up.

The musician shared her excitement on Instagram. “This song is my favorite and I can’t wait for u to see the vid ARGH go n stream the life out of her ILYSM!” Her new EP, Goober, will be available on all platforms on July 30.
