New Music: Laura Elliott

American artist Laura Elliott is a singer-songwriter who creates a beautifully organic blend of indie, pop and folk.

New single ‘Better Off Alone’ features an an emotive melody that perfectly sets the tone for Elliott’s vocals to shine through, and tell the story of a young broken heart.

“I wrote ‘Better Off Alone’ after my first heartbreak coming out of high school. It was a way for me to process and put words to my feelings, which kickstarted my love for songwriting. It’s basically me reflecting on the end of the relationship and cutting contact with that person, navigating life without them and missing them but knowing that chapter is closed. I think it’s easy to remember the good memories and idealise a person, but you have to remind yourself of the reality of the situation and why it’s healthier for you to be on your own. This one is extremely special to me since it was the first time I discovered how much I love writing music, it was one of the first songs I wrote.”
