“The Baptist” is the evocative first official single from London-based artist Lauren Auder. Inspired by the work of 20th Century composer Maurice Duruflé, “The Baptist” pulls from an array of disparate genres, anchored by that striking, sullen voice. An incongruous yet stunning blend of a weighty vocal with delicate orchestration.
The 19-year-old singer/songwriter was born in Watford and raised in the south west of France. over the past two years anticpitation for his first official release has been growing following his work in the underground rap and experimental electronica scene.
“The Baptist” is released via True Panther Sounds.
