Laura Welsh Cracks Herself Open on ‘Sex & Violence’

It follows her 2015 album 'Soft Control'

Laura Welsh first rose to prominence as a singer on Gorgon City’s 2014 single “Here For You,” but the Staffordshire singer broke out on her own with this spring’s Soft Control, her tenderly crafted debut album.

Not content to let 2015 fade without new music, however, Welsh’s been holed up in studios in Los Angeles, London, and Stockholm working on her follow-up, and today she’s debuting “Sex & Violence,” a no-holds barred portrait of what happens behind closed doors. The song’s piano through-line weeps from measure to measure, Welsh’s voice pushing against her own chest as it escapes her lips.

Hear “Sex & Violence” below and expect more new Welsh tunes soon.
