23rd October | Exchange

My relationship with Laura Misch is about to come full circle, having seen her perform very briefly at Love Supreme two years ago with her brother (you may have heard of him). More recently, I saw her supporting London jazzman, Alfa Mist. I am finally about to get the Laura Misch experience: an immersive live set which will hopefully last longer than her support slot to Alfa Mist.

I remember her performing a handful of new songs which have since been released and I can finally indulge in their jazzy glory. Her latest endeavour is Lonely City, a seven-track project which experiments with synths, sax and silky vocals. At its core, Laura’s work is a sonic soundscape and she explores these themes, particularly in her latest release, inspired by her surroundings in South London. Expect lots of textured jazz and glossy saxophone licks.

My excitement was tripled once I saw that Emily Isherwood will be the support for the evening. I most recently saw her perform at Breakfest with a full band, delivering raspy vocal runs and visceral lyrics. With an arsenal of celestial tunes and the thought of new goodies being performed, I count the days until this gig.

Laura Misch will be bringing her one-woman looping show to Exchange on 23rd October.
