After unleashing her debut EP Everything Is Dogs a few months ago, Isle Of Wight’s own Lauran Hibberd has shared yet another incredible single with 'Sweet Patch'. The release of her new track comes alongside her UK and Europe support tour with US punk rockers The Regrettes.

Her signature honest and observant lyrics are on full display on 'Sweet Patch'. Also featuring on the track are fuzzy and sporadic guitars, which alongside Hibberd's calm and collected vocals, make for yet another catchy slacker-pop gem. On the single, she said:

"Sweat Patch is arguably a song about drugs, but it’s not like I’m trying to be cool about it. I’m pretty much frigid with anything unprescribed. But because of that, this song is based on my idea of that world. There’s loads of songs about getting high, not as many songs about watching and I guess analysing other people do it. I guess this is me, soberly sat in a room watching all of my friends take drugs. I guess there’s also a nod to the elephant in the room, A DUDE. There’s always a dude! And I guess this song stemmed from me being into this guy, but he was pretty much into other things more."
