Up and coming Christchurch artist Laura Hunter, now based in Auckland, released her highly anticipated EP ‘Quiet Underwater’ on the 21st of June 2013, after an organic process of developing, collaborating and performing with Producer/Musician, Lukas Kelly.
‘Quiet Underwater’ reviewed by NZ Musician Magazine as ‘Stunning Electro Pop with total heart’. Electro Pop at times meets drum and bass, held together by rhythmic acoustic guitar, emotive lyrics and a fresh captivating new voice.
Laura’s success shone through in 2013 on The Audience, where her two singles, featured on the EP, 'Don't Be Afraid to Love' and 'Driving in a Straight Line' both remained at number one of the released charts & ‘Driving in a Straight Line’ secured a place on ‘The Best of the Audience Year One’ Spotify playlist.
‘Driving in a Straight line’ went on to receive music video funding by New Zealand On Air, and the music video was officially released on Friday 31st of January 2014. It reflects a stunning artistic concept, developed by director Guy Tichborne, which met the exact vision Laura had for the single. The video eloquently gives life to Laura’s sound, produced by Lukas Kelly.
