Laura Mitchell returns with achingly-beautiful number ‘Killing Time‘. Somewhere in between Ray Charles and Adele, the stunning single was composed by John Young. With the song literally writing itself in a short amount of time, John had the track full written by the time he landed in London from Western Australia.
Laura Mitchell connected with the single instantly and said, “I didn’t see this coming or work towards it. I am in a wedding band. At weddings, many people ask, “Do you perform you own stuff?” or “You should go on X Factor” I didn’t have plans for that. I used to write music in my teens but worked off most of that angst and sadly stopped writing music when I started learning about it at Uni. I suffered from stage fright for a long time, but through the wedding band, the ability to put on the dress and heels and become a rock star – singing other people’s songs, I become someone else. It’s nice for me to become vulnerable again with a chance to show off the softer side of my vocals”.
Poetically beautiful, ‘Killing Time’ is achingly relatable.
