The last two years have been quite the joyride for Northern Sydney’s Laura Hyde. She toured with labelmates Gold Member, The Moving Stills and The Vitriots on Sureshaker’s annual Shake N Bake Tour, supported BOO Seeka, performed at the Bello Winter Music Festival and at the Woodford Folk Festival. Laura also supported Canadian contemporary folk group The East Pointers on their national tour. She has made waves around Australia with her infectious personality, stunning vocal delivery and lyrically emotional songwriting. Her latest single, “Coca Cola,” brings home the dark pop elements that she’s recognized for and executes it to new heights. The haunting melodies are reinforced by a fierce and unstoppable beat, while the guitar riff sets up the chase, leading into a powerful chorus. On the surface, the song sounds promising but beneath is something destructive and harmful. According to Laura, the song is about watching someone trying to cover their tracks. It’s calling the person out and letting them know they’re not going to get away with it. “Coca Cola” is the follow–up single to “Bliss,” which has been featured on a number of Spotify editorial playlists, including New Music Friday AU & NZ, Indie Arrivals, Front Left, Fresh Finds and The Office Stereo.
