Building on the promise of his debut EP, Up Tomorrow, Lewes-raised newcomer Laucan releases his anticipated debut album, FramesPerSecond via Sunday Best. With Andrew Phillips of Ninja Tune post-rock duo Grasscut as a collaborator, in FramesPerSecond Laurence Galpin, the man who is Laucan (pronounced Lor-can) utilises impressionist lyrical images and heart-in-mouth reveries on innocence lost to sublime music. When Laucan began singing in falsetto after the break-up of his old band, he had his reasons. “I didn’t want anyone hearing my songs through the door of my room,” recalls Galpin. The falsetto holds firm but the reluctance to be heard is changing with the arrival of the 27-year-old’s debut album, FramesPerSecond. Like his debut EP, Up Tomorrow, FramesPerSecond sets impressionist lyrical images and heart-in-mouth reveries on innocence lost to sublime music: poised between spectral folk and immersive soundscapes, it’s the sound of a singer who found something special in his attic-based isolation.
