Laura Frances is a haunting new voice in UK alt-folk, with a startling depth and a richly intense tone that instantly marks her out as one to watch, a unique new addition to the folk world . A dark, contralto Joni Mitchell, her songs are delivered with a refreshing brevity, wrapped in a cloak of misty melodies from a world rich in mystical imagery, where everything is half-hidden. She plays tonight with her full 5-piece band.
