Are you loving the refreshingly sweet synth-pop sound of Laura Jean right now? The video for new track Girls On The TV, taken from her forthcoming LP Devotion, is just as charming and affirming as the sound, exploring precious moments of being a little girl, dancing in your drenched-pink bedroom like no one’s watching but the dog, feeling a moment’s breathing space of peace and possibility, no matter what’s going on at home or school.
Like a wise older sister, Laura Jean says, “I see myself as the narrator, an ordinary woman wearing a shiny pink dreamcoat that signifies it’s my turn to tell a story. It doesn’t matter that my story is ordinary, what matters is that I tell my story with hard earned skill and loving sincerity. I want to show that the everyday story of a girl is important, and that seemingly inconsequential events in a girl’s life can have a huge effect on her.”
