Dublin, County Dublin
LAOISE is an Irish electro-pop artist hailing from Galway, Ireland. Her music incorporates elements of synth, soul and alternative pop.
Growing up playing the violin and piano before teaching herself the guitar at 11, LAOISE began writing at the age of 15 where she soon began exploring the shiny buoyancy electronics can offer. Her lyrics draw inspiration from feelings of anxiety and angst, many of which reveal inclinations of hopelessness and despair, which she defiantly contrasts with confidence and complacency.
Her debut single ‘YOU’ was premiered on CLASH and has over 200K Spotify streams to date, peaking at #4 in the Spotify UK Viral 50 and #17 in the Norway Viral 50. Other noteworthy press comes in the form of The 405, The Line Of Best Fit, Born Music, Nialler9 and Wonderland Magazine, where soon after LAOISE was chosen as one of Golden Plec’s 'Ones To Watch' for 2017.
Second single ‘Halfway' premiered on Notion Magazine calling her 'a new phenomenon in her own right'. Since its release, it has been named The Line of Best Fit's 'Song of the Day', as well as featured on BuzzFeed's April 2017 playlist.
