Laura Gibson has just announced that her new album La Grande will be released in January 2012 and in order to celebrate the news, she’s released a free download of her latest track, Milk-Heavy, Pollen-Eyed. There’s also an acoustic video to go with it, you lucky people.
Born in the small town of Coquille, Oregon, Gibson started out by playing solo acoustic gigs at AIDS hospices and kindergartens. Now she is quickly making a name for herself in the modern folk music scene.
Her unique vocals howl through on Milk-Heavy, Pollen-Eyed and compliment the heavier tones and faster tempo of the song.
The beat of the track will have your feet tapping along within a few seconds and you will begin to sway to the melodic folk rhythm.
Her new album, La Grande, is said to bring out Gibson’s inner strength after her previous record, Beast of Seasons, showed her frailty and quietness. La Grande is a record expected to be full of passion and power.
