London based Laura-Jean did the rounds in guitar-pop outfit Screaming Ballerinas not so long ago, but, since returning as a solo artist she’s really upped her game. In coming back with two debut tracks, ‘Drum Roll’ and ‘Levitate’, Laura-Jean explores a sound with foundations steeped in electro-pop.

It’s the former that we’ve been tipped with today – and ‘Drum Roll’ is the perfect introduction to Laura-Jean’s sleek, sugar-sweet pop. With layered, crystalline vocals and a prevailing beat, the track tentatively flirts with a dance floor charm reminiscent of the finer moments of Little Boots and Marina – and Laura-Jean has given herself the perfect platform to take a shot at becoming the next queen of pop. There are a host of DJ set dates already announced, with Laura-Jean’s first live dates teasingly “coming soon”. Keep up to date on
