Ground Control Touring Welcomes Lauren Early

Posted 04/12/2023

In her idiosyncratic debut LP Don’t Take My Dream Away, Los Angeles based musician Lauren Early obsessively strives to make a time-withstanding album that’s listened to from start to finish. “I wanted to make a Last Splash, a Dookie, a Siamese Dream…an album with absolutely no dead weight that takes you on a journey and adds another layer of joy, catharsis, and…vibes to your life,” she says. Embracing ambition during one of the toughest chapters of her life, she pushed herself both musically and lyrically to make something singular and career-defining. The resultant collection is a perfect introduction to Early: The songs are funny but wholeheartedly earnest, relentlessly memorable while refusing to overstay their welcome. After years spent touring in bands like Surf Curse and Girlpool, Early is now establishing herself as an artist in her own right—and one of the most refreshing, charming, and promising new voices in indie rock.
