Hands Off Gretel's lead vocalist Lauren Tate has announced her very own solo album.
The album is set to be released on September 20th and is being released by Trash Queen Records. It is reported that Lauren herself recorded and self produced 11 of 14 in her own home studio. The new album is to be titled "Songs for Sad Girls".
Lauren said: "I planned to get my album produced by someone when I could afford it, but there was a certain magic and honesty captured in my recordings that I knew would really move people,” says Lauren. “My lyrics are honest and brutal with songs about domestic abuse, body image, feminism and fear of dying. I wanted it to sound like a girl writing in her diary, unapologetic and imperfect like real girls are.”
Tate is well known due to her distinctive vocals but is frequently compared to Pop/Rockstar P!NK and Lauren has played on that factor extremely well:
The electrifying lead singer also recently released a song "What about the kids". She said that "”The song is from a child’s point of view speaking to her father addressing gun violence in America, I wanted the song to highlight issues around gun control and the importance of children’s future in a world where nobody is listening to them. I wrote this song to sing for those that won’t ever get the chance to do so.”
