“Laura” by Western Affairs is not a song to take lightly. In the beginning, you get a cool, laid-back percussion paired with a surreal, echoing guitar. This ambient sound continues throughout the song and keep things hip and dreamy, but the vocals take things in an interesting direction.
They’re deeply emotive. They’re personal.
It’s what made Western Affairs stand out upon first listen. It’s a little different; doesn’t seem like it should work, but it works very, very well. Formed by Alex Lee, this three piece from DC is sure to win over your heart.
