‘Game Over’ is the newest single from North London’s burgeoning pop songstress, Laurel Smith. The release follows on from the success of her previous single ‘Candy‘, featuring MoFlo music, which was unveiled earlier this year to notable support from fans.
‘Game Over’ is bursting with spacey, dark melodies and hip-hop heavy beats which sit perfectly on top of Laurel’s signature moody, synth-pop vibes & airy vocal delivery. Her music is reminiscent of artists like Billie Eilish and Ashnikko but with a distinctly home-grown, London swag about them which adds a slight edge to her appeal and differentiates Laurel from her peers across the pond.
At just eighteen years of age, Laurel Smith is still in the early years of both her life and her musical career. But judging by the strength of her recent releases, coupled with her unrelenting drive and god-given talent as a songwriter and vocalist, Laurel will soon be a force to be reckoned with on the international pop music stage.
Here, Laurel Smith explains the meaning behind ‘Game Over’:
“ ‘Game Over’ is a dark, atmospheric track with a driving chorus. It’s about a vicious cycle: being in a situation which you try everything to get out of, but always finding yourself back in the same place you began. Like a character in a video game, every time you die you are regenerated at the start. I wrote the track during a low point in my life where I felt I had no control over anything anymore. I hope others can hear the song and identify with the same feelings I was experiencing.”
