Coming all the way from Nashville is Lauren Strahm (AKA Fleurie). Having released singles All The Lines in 2013, Paralyzed in 2014 and then the Arrows EP in 2015 she is back with the debut album Love And War. Now this LP is literally a masterpiece, it was perfectly produced and just listening takes my breath away. Actually it’s rather shocking that Fleurie has released everything as an independent artist. From playing the album from start to end it is plain to see she has the knack to writing brilliant songs. She’s even dubbed Love And War as her cinematic song collection.

Love And War: Sharing the same title as this epic album was this delicious cut. Just listening leaves me completely hypnotised. Love And War was a perfectly produced electro pop jam which reminded me of Lana Del Rey at times. “Lover, hunter, friend and enemy/ You will always be every of these/Lover, hunter, friend and enemy/ You will always be every of these/ Nothing’s fair in Love And War”. Fleurie’s smoldering vocals were ever so exquisite. Love And War has been well crafted and on the whole this well produced number sent chills up my spine.
