After a five-year radio silence (pun intended), Laura Imbruglia released her 2019 album Scared of You. Delving deep into the mind and listening habits of her past few years, the record traverses realms of pub rock, brooding indie pop, classic country, shoegaze, grunge and even yacht rock. With such a broad stylistic scope, exemplified through the album’s four stand alone singles ‘Tricks’, ‘Diptych’, ‘The Creeps’ and ‘Carry You Around’, Imbruglia has earned her stripes as one of Melbourne’s most exciting artists.

Beneath the gritty, shiny surface, Scared of You sees Laura at her most openly vulnerable yet. Produced by long-time collaborator Nick Huggins, the album gives insight into the joys, frustrations, trials, and tribulations of human interaction. It’s 30 minutes of danceable, punchable, huggable catharsis that showcases the refined songwriting and chameleon like musicianship of an artist at the peak of a massive career.
