Laurel Canyons is born.
There’s no smoke and mirrors when it comes to Jake Cope (vocals/guitar), Paul Burdett (guitar/vocals), France Lahmar (bass guitar/ vocals) and Arv Teeroovengadum (drums/vocals). The four-piece from Sheffield make music that can be described as orchestral and grandiose, but their stately melodies derive from an inherent understanding of balance in their artistry. Their songs elate with fragility and strength, as the light and shade of their intricate arrangements are effortless to the ear and breathtaking to watch.
Their presence exudes something truly magical and awe-inspiring. A sheer determination illuminates their being, and infiltrates a sound so resolute and confident, it doesn’t shy away from letting intimate and vulnerable nuances shine.
Laurel Canyons’ music cascades, curves, and unravels, and then you realise you’ve found a diamond in the rough.
