Lauran Hibberd - Garageband Superstar

The title ‘Garageband Superstar’ hit a bit close to home for me; my 15 year old self desperately tried to create the next hit via Garageband, and yet here I am, writing about other people’s music. However, I will humbly let Lauran Hibberd have this victory, as this album somehow manages to sound like all my favourite 90s pop-punk bands rolled into one (one of which - Wheatus - actually features on the title track.) It’s not just Hibberd’s influences that shine through, but also her personality, with her witty lyrics, charismatic vocals and addictive hooks making for a thoroughly enjoyable listen. LT
