Laura Sheeran hails from Galway in Ireland. And this review of her new album gives you some perspective..
"Sounding like the lovechild of David Lynch and Björk, Laura Sheeran is taking her exceedingly weird musical experiments to new levels. In this follow-up to last year's often uneasy-on-the-ear Lust of Pig and the Fresh Blood, Sheeran dabbles in haunting yet alluring experimental melodies. Rather than portray her as a wailing banshee, What the World Knows unveils a delicate siren with a knack for the edgy, complex, and unique. The standout Forever Love shows Sheeran is a talented vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. Hurricane, with its harp intro and medieval tones, is just as accomplished while REDLIGHT evokes Sonic Youth and early PJ Harvey." - Sunday Times, Culture magazine
