As the world of alt-pop continues to burst, more artists like Laraw are making their voices heard through the cracks. On our latest peek into the alternative world we are checking out “Scissors”, the latest drop from Laraw. Hailing from the North American alternative haven Montreal, Laraw is a bit of an anomaly in the pop music world. Embracing her Lebanese and Moroccan roots, Laraw is able to sing in French, English and Arabic. This allows almost limitless ways for Laraw to express herself, so we are definitely not surprised to find her as a cathartic alt-pop maven. Combining her love of video games with a musical background in music production and sound design, Laraw found the exact formula and methodology to run wild and create a sound that is uniquely Laraw’s.
“Scissors is for sure the most important song I’ve ever written and marked a new chapter of my life. I got to actually meet myself, grow, and learn that the first person you should always love is yourself.” – Laraw
We are beyond thrilled that enough music gatekeepers have been knocked to the side so the alternative world can truly thrive. With “Scissors” being the latest addition to the Laraw catalog, we’re able to see just how raw and honest of a musician Laraw is trying to become. This latest track lets Laraw’s raw production pop from the background, letting her instrumental work add more definition to her personal nature as a musician. Laraw doesn’t hold anything back within the lyrics either, as “Scissors” details the ever prevalent highs and lows of dating and heartbreak, letting her emotions shine through and paint the track in a more honest and innocent light. While she may only have a handful of singles under her belt, we will definitely watch as Laraw’s personal approach will cultivate a loyal community very soon.
