Laucan

When Lewes-raised newcomer Laucan began singing in falsetto after the break-up of his old band, he had his reasons. “I didn’t want anyone hearing my songs through the door of my room,” recalls Laurence Galpin, the man who is Laucan (pronounced Lor-can). The falsetto holds firm but the reluctance to be heard is changing with the arrival of the 27-year-old’s debut album, FramesPerSecond. Building on the promise of his debut EP, ‘Up Tomorrow’, Frames sets impressionist lyrical images and heart-in-mouth reveries on innocence lost to sublime music: poised between spectral folk and immersive soundscapes, it’s the sound of a singer who found something special in his attic-based isolation.
