Full of wonder- Lohrd Snohw is our artist of the month

Electronic, female singer, indie, News, pop, Pop Music, Review

The Pop Playlister team are excited to debut our latest feature, ‘Artist of the Month’, a space for us to share the very best talents we’ve discovered and put them on your radar. 

Our first Artist of the Month, and the best thing we’ve heard in July, is Lohrd Snohw. Now that name may sound familiar to our readers (and no we’re not talking Game Of Thrones), the talented Lohrd Snohw has made it onto more than one of our Fresh Music Friday playlists and has turned the Pop Playlister team into die hard fans. 

I was lucky enough to have a catch up with Lohrd Snohw (aka Cazzie) ahead of her latest release ‘Dogs’. Cazzie is a UK singer-songwriter whose childhood has taken her from the big smoke, all the way to rural midlands and beyond. Music has always formed an important part of Cazzie’s life, from writing her very first songs at just 11 to performing in local band scenes as a teenager, the 21 Year Old singer has a wealth of musical experience.

 Yet it is Cazzie’s recent releases that are the truest expression of her diverse artistry. Cazzie rightfully refuses to place herself and her music in a genre, an artist who draws inspiration and influence from far and wide; it is hard to box Lohrd Snohw in.

She describeS her music as deliberate, intentional and with purpose. Music with meaning, and a style that is truly authentic and raw. The words Art-Pop and Electro can be thrown around when discussing Lohrd Snohw’s artistry, but the best way to understand her genius is to listen to her music yourself. 

‘Dogs’ is Lohrd Snohw’s most recent release, an ethereal piece featuring Cazzie’s dreamy vocals and trippy electro inspired instrumental. Cazzie is full of originality and innovation, an artist not afraid to push the boundaries of sound and genre making her music truly new, fresh and exciting. It is artists like Lohrd Snohw that show most promise in what is undeniably an oversaturated musical market, Cazzie is a true stand out talent in our eyes. 

The rising star has an EP in the works, and plenty more musical genius to share with the world. The future is bright for Lohrd Snohw so watch this space.

Wicked Wordplay and Upbeat Indie-Pop Sound in Lauran Hibberd’s new single ‘Sugardaddy’

indie, pop

Building a name for herself with her colourful brand of indie-pop, Lauran Hibberd is the fresh face from Isle of Wight that has kicked off 2019 with her new single Sugardaddy – an upbeat, good vibe track that is impossible not to love.

Hibberd’s new release flawlessly displays her range of crisp vocals and fun-loving melodies and the pairing of this with a breakdown of the crunching and colliding of the guitar throughout, Sugardaddy has instrumentals of a very millennial sound – bringing an irony to the track in the face of its fun lyrics about wanting a sugardaddy.

Hibberd indulges her twisted sense of humour in her music, detailing her release as ‘there’s a million love songs, but my dream  is to live in a world where there’s a million songs like wanting a sugar daddy’ – a fresh, comical take on the more deeper issues of love and life that can be the lyrical subject of most songs.

Recently named as one of Huw Stephens’ Top Tips for 2019 and confirmed to support US indie rockers Hippo Campus on a full UK/European tour this spring, plans are certainly shaping up nicely for the young musician whose off-kilter style has already earned comparisons to Courtney Barnett and Weezer.
