DOGVIOLET is the debut album by Laurel. Titled after the flower, the album explores the ups and downs of being in love, Laurel explains:
“I wrote these songs at home often locking myself away for periods of time in order to capture the true mania that comes from love; although a beautiful feeling, it can often feel a lot uglier.”
Works for the album began in late 2015 after scrapping an entire record for unknown reasons. Laurel started writing and recording the material in her bedroom studio, it was then taken to Gizzard Studios to be properly mastered.
