Montreal singer- songwriter Laraw has just released her highly anticipated EP, Mood Af. Back in March of this year, Laraw took the music industry by storm with the release of her debut single, “I Should Call The Cops” alongside a deeply sentimental video filmed at her fathers family business for Pretty Necklace. With the amount of traction her singles have gained in only a matter of months, there is no denying that Laraw’s star is on the rise, and her debut EP is sure to propel the indi artist’s career further into the music industry stratosphere.
The four track EP is a genre blending project that showcases Laraw’s haunting and therapeutic vocals as she weaves in and out of soundscapes built around contemporary pop, trap influences, acoustic stylings and everything in between. Though this is the Montreal artist’s official debut, Laraw has a thorough background in the arts with a resume consisting of sound design, music production and modelling for Montreal brands such as UPPL (Tamy Emma Pépin), Sokoloff Lingerie and Le artof.
From front to back, Mood AF, is a creatively deep and rich project that stands out boldly on it’s own merit. Be sure to check out the debut from Laraw, and as always, share your thoughts with us below.
“Mood Af represents the psychological evolution of someone falling into addiction. Going from denial to total acceptance. I always hated to party, because everyone gets drunk and you feel this social pressure to get drunk. As I did, I realized that I would completely lose control. Mood Af is basically me going to a party, losing control, trying to fight it, but ending up in this dark place again.” She adds: “I also always scream Mood Af when I finish a song!”
