Description & tracklisting

“A hypnotic debut album that extraordinarily lands between The Incredible String Band and Radiohead…Gorgeous orchestrations embellish Galpin’s falsetto and folkish finger pickings.” – Shindig
“You can hear songbirds on Laurence Galpin’s debut album, but even they would be envious of his falsetto.” – GQ
“An enchanting, beatific full–length… Mesmeric finger–picked guitar and affecting strings make for a record of refined quality.” – Long Live Vinyl – 8/10
“A dreamy come–hither folk debut…Tracks such as Up Tomorrow and You Give Way sound almost like offcuts from Jeff Buckley’s Grace, their multi-tracked vocals accompanied by birdsong and electronics.” – The Guardian
“A breathtaking jaw-dropper that grabs you by the scruff of your neck and whips you into a new world.” – The Line of Best Fit
“He blurs his earnest delivery with small mysterious movements… FramesPerSecond is an atmospheric introduction.” – MOJO

Lewes-raised newcomer, Laucan began singing in falsetto after the break-up of an old band, he had his reasons. I didn’t want anyone hearing my songs through the door of my room, recalls Laurence Galpin, the 27-year-old behind the Laucan (pronunciation: Lor-can) moniker. Thankfully, his newfound readiness to be heard doesn’t come at any cost to his distinct voice on his debut Album Frames Per Second.

Laucan composes with a cinematic auteur’s sense of shading and world-building and a flair for sound art that evokes a sense of environment shows in his work as previously supported by heavyweight taste makers The Line Of Best Fit & CLASH.
