Single Review: Liz Lawrence – Bedroom Hero
The melodic beauty of Laura Marling meets the atmospheric rises and falls of Florence + The Machine. Liz Lawrence’s new single ‘Bedroom Hero’ is the first track from her début album (out 2013) with the same title. At only 22 Lawrence has already been receiving rave reviews across Ireland, and it’s no wonder why. ‘Bedroom Hero’ has thought-provoking lyrics, stunning vocals all encompassed in a simple yet somewhat haunting instrumental. Featuring guitars, drums, strings, pianos and even a brass section this is a well-written, very mature track.
With her roots set in punk, it may not be the first genre that comes to mind when you hear this, however, do not underestimate Liz Lawrence, she has a feisty stage presence, determination, a serious amount of touring already under her belt, and if things continue to move as they have so far she will definitely be one to watch for 2013. I would suggest trying to catch her at any one of her up-coming shows across the UK early next year, and in the meantime checking out her latest EP Live At No.83.
Release Date 26/11/2012 (Liz Lawrence Music)
