Resurfacing jack of all trades, Laura Imbruglia is set to hit the road Friday 3 May to tour her recently released album Scared of You. Following from 2013’s What A Treat and breaking a five-year radio silence, Scared of You delves deep into the mind and listening habits of Laura’s past few years, traversing realms of pub rock, brooding indie pop, classic country, shoegaze, grunge and even yacht rock. With such a broad stylistic scope, exemplified through the album’s singles ‘Tricks’, ‘Diptych’, ‘The Creeps’ and ‘Carry You Around’,Imbruglia has earned her stripes as one of Melbourne’s most exciting artists of today.
Beneath the gritty, shiny surface, Scared of You sees Laura at her most openly vulnerable yet. Produced by long-time collaborator Nick Huggins, the album gives insight into the joys, frustrations, trials, and tribulations of human interaction.
“The album focuses on the constant shift between insecurity, comfort, confusion and restlessness that occurs in all corners of life, and investigates and unpacks human fallibility. It wasn’t all that fun to write these songs but it sure is fun to play them!” – Laura Imbruglia
Featuring a recently revitalised band lineup of Alex MacRae (Sons of Rico) on lead guitar, Kelly Dingeldei (Loobs) on bass & backing vocals, and James Trewenack (Glass Diamonds) on drums, Laura Imbruglia and her band have been garnering new and returning fans with an utterly impressive live show. The outfit supported Teenage Fanclub for a pair of sold-out shows at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel plus an appearance atBoogie Festival. With two East Coast single tours under her belt in the past six months, Laura is keen to be taking her band and her LP on a more extensive Scared of You national album tour in May, hitting up Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and more, including a few regional Victorian shows. Do not miss it!
