Laura Clock crafts music that is alive with contrasts and contradictions. Shimmery in tone yet shot through with powerful sub-bass and percussive trickery, her songs feel simultaneously weightless and overpowering, and pack a striking emotional resonance. Her new EP ›Baby Part I‹ marks the follow-up to her acclaimed 2013 debut ›First Prom‹, released under the name ButterClock. It was written, produced and recorded by Clock over the course of 2014 following several years of near-constant touring, and explores similar lyrical themes to its predecessor – »sad love, melancholia and bassy beats,« as she puts it. »Cause we never really change, do we? Dancing at crying at the same time, forever.« Yet ›Baby Part I‹ nonetheless finds her in a distinct sonic place: subtler, bolder and more expansive in vision.
For 2015, Laura Clock is receiving a grant in the amount of 4,000 euros for the re-start of her artistic endeavors.
