Laura Pergolizzi, the artist known as LP, has officially arrived. The Long Island native ascended into international indie stardom, having previously penned hits for artists like Rihanna, Cher, and the Backstreet Boys, and now sees the musician releasing her own latest effort… ‘Heart To Mouth’.
LP’s fifth album is a disco drag race, filled with catchy choruses, LGBTQ support, and synthy pop hooks. “When I get on the mic I can feel that direct line from my heart to my mouth… whether they’re sad songs or big anthems, they all come from the same place.”
LP’s climb, which began modestly and mostly across seas, has rocketed into a staple of Vogue magazine editorials, Netflix credits, songwriting compliments with Morrissey and millions of cult followers on social media.
“Girls Go Wild”, one of the album’s singles, is a dreamy bass number full of half-eaten hearts and an anthem of self-rejuvenation. “I always feel guilty about how renewed I feel when I meet someone new. It worries me that that could change my whole outlook. That’s a really delicate place…” It’s all in the name of the Wild Wild West.
Heart To Mouth’ leaves listeners SH-SH-SH-Shaken with anticipation and curiosity. (Just wait for the whistles and operatic range…) Catch LP on her HTM stop in Philadelphia at The Fillmore. Get your tickets in advance, though, as almost half of this tour is sold out. At least I’ll go to Heaven.
