Returning with her first offering of the year, North London’s rising star Laurel Smith has revealed her new single, Out the Cage, accompanied by an action packed, cinematic- style music video directed by Jeremie Brivet and Jai Garcha.
Sticking to her winning recipe of moody, dark, electro-pop production paired with edgy tales of narrative lyricism, Out the Cage follows its predecessor, Game Over.
A songwriter and recording artist, Smith has been writing songs since the age of 16. With each single she’s released, she has continued to adapt her sound and aesthetic, consistently honing her craft and evolving her brand.
A purveyor of the dark, electro-pop sound, Smith’s music blends underground trap beats with smooth R&B melodies and catchy, pop-style lyrics in order to create the distinctively hazy, moody-pop vibe that she’s come to be known for.
Inspired by "bad-ass female artists" ranging from Lana Del Ray to Ashnikko, her music is intentionally provocative, drawing you into her surreal world of video games and old Hollywood glamour – in which she is the main protagonist.
