Supports announce for Laura Jean’s Press Play tour Feb/Mar 2019

Laura Jean‘s Press Play headline tour starts in just a few weeks, and now we can announce the amazing supports for each show. These are Laura’s first headline dates since her sold out Devotion album launches in July/August 2018.

In Sydney, Laura is joined by Marcus Whale (in duo mode) and Bree Van Reyk. In Melbourne she plays with Jade Imagine and mysterious newcomers Honey 2 Honey. In Perth it’s Rabbit Island and Hi. Ok, Sorry., while in Fremantle it’s Lana Rothnie and Teen Angst. Finally in Brisbane, Laura plays with McKiskoand Orlando furious.

Laura Jean finished 2018 on a high note, with a triumphant Friday night slot at Meredith Music Festival, and a November UK/Europe tour supporting Courtney Barnett.

The deep, emotive pop of Laura‘s album Devotion was one of last year’s international success stories, earning nods from Pitchfork, NME, Elle Magazine and elsewhere, and making its way into end-of-year best-of lists for the likes of SpinIdolatorApple MusicLNWYThe Australian and many more.

Along the way, Laura has acquired some vocal, enthusiastic fans, such as Lorde, Aldous Harding, Marlon Williams and actor Brie Larson.

In addition to the Press Play dates, Laura also has some great shows coming up, including performances at Bendigo Autumn Music Festival, Charlton Motel, and dates with Marlon Williams and Neko Case.

Praise for the Devotion album:

“Maybe the sharpest communication of the spooky, all-consuming nature of feminine love I’ve ever seen.” – Lorde
“This is the sort of music everyone should want to make…she’s written what I think is the perfect pop song.” – Marlon Williams in The Observer (UK)
“Bottles up the optimism of youth, making a pop song promise that things will eventually get better” – Pitchfork
“A new world of melancholy, narrative-driven pop.” – NME
“Consumes you in one swoop.” – The Quietus
“A dazzling, immersive synth-pop odyssey.” – Gorilla Vs Bear
