Thanks to LA Weekly for interviewing me about BE HERE NOW and premiering the new video for "Cocoon" in which director Lavinia Jones Wright and I travel to some dystopian post-apocalyptic global melting future and manage to find safety, solace, and beauty in the Southern Californian super bloom, and each other. (Hint: the future is now.) Here's to finding safe spaces in tumultuous times. Let us be like the lovers sealed together forever in ash at the foot of vesuvius (even as the fighting and fire rages), monuments of love. xx, Laura. 

Special thanks to Jaime O'Bradovich for bringing out the full-spectrum color, and to Future Eyes for helping us crystallize our vision. 


A little bit David Lynch, a little bit Michael Jackson's "Thriller," the new video for "Believer" (directed by Michael Erik Nikolla) features Laura narrowly escaping the grips of a cult as she's chased through the streets of Los Angeles with her trusty dog, Charlie. Look for cameos from plenty of Saddle Creek bands...


And now I present to you: the premiere of VELVETEEN over at Noisey, in all its BLOODY GLORY...

"Vampires. Universally sexy. Blood, starlight, hot breath on the neck before the perfect puncture. Here we find a solo vamp (Mynabirds' Laura Burhenn) stalking the streets, looking wan, getting in an altercation with a douchebag and finding her honor defended by a stranger, and then, well, then it all goes perfectly pearshaped and boy does the blood gush. An estuary of ruby red."

Enjoy, my lovers!! And see you on tour on the west coast this week! 


PS: thanks to LEAN and every single person who made this video a bloody dream. xx
