Sublime, deep southern soul; Lauren Pritchard’s new single ‘Not The Drinking.’

Lauren Pritchard's forthcoming album 'Wasted In Jackson'

Sublime, deep southern soul is delivered in plentiful measure by Lauren Pritchard next month; as she releases both her new single ‘Not The Drinking’ and debut album ‘Wasted In Jackson’ on October 25th, 2010.

I am a big fan of Lauren’s debut single ‘When the Night Kills the Day’ and ‘Not The Drinking’ just enhances my awe of this southern belle with the lush throaty lull. The video is great too; directed by Wendy Morgan (Janelle Monae’s ‘Tightrope’ and ‘Cold War’), the visual soulfest delivers impromptu dance routines and erratic movements, whilst focusing on the chemistry and implied intense relationship between Pritchard and the male lead. I tend to be drawn to much of the above, so this was a no-brainer for me.

Pritchard’s eleven-track debut album also features recent single ‘Painkillers’ and the addictive ‘Stuck’; both displaying heartfelt harmonies and powerful piano pieces. Critics have commended Pritchard on her vocal maturity and captivating songwriting for the tender age of just 22-years, but is that not when you are most intune with your emotional intelligence; before the cynicism and self-doubt sets in? A deep thought for the hour of 11:37 am you might say!

I recommend going along to one of the shows above if you get the chance; I’ve heard that Pritchard’s voice has to be heard live to be believed, so I will be hotfooting it to Manchester on October 10th. Maybe see you there?
