We’re all teenage dirtbags at heart really. If you don’t think you are, then frankly you’re just too ashamed to admit it and I’m very, very disappointed in you. Lauran Hibberd is great, isn’t she? Teaming up with The Regrettes’ Lydia Night for new banger ‘How Am I Still Alive?‘ sees Hibberd take thing to a whole other level as she continues to not-sleep her way into the stratosphere.
The track also has one of my favourite at home videos, with stupid concepts, brilliant artwork, an IASIP cushion and – praise be- a really great looking dog. It’s probably not great for her fridge that she’s opening and shutting it more frequently than someone on their first week of furlough – and the mango chutney (other condiments are available) keeps catching my eye, rapidly making dinner plans against my best wishes.
Perfect for an early ’00s teen drama, who cares that this might be twenty years too late? It’s fun, catchy and an absolutely storming shits-out-in-the-open-now-mate-I’d-be-scared-if-I-were-you anthem. Her new EP Goober drops on 30th July, so not too long to wait until there’s more of this to devour.
