Sydney Alt-Pop Singer-Songwriter LaHi just released her exhilarating new single ‘Cracking Weather’ exploring the double standards around the way women dress in the blistering Aussie summer wrapped in an feminine and unflinching rock anthem.
‘Cracking Weather’ is best described as a rambunctious rocking rant complete with raw anecdotes and bolstered by slapping rock riffs, blasting horns and unapologetic vocals. The soulful vocals of Laura Higgins come from years of jazz performances, ranging from the sublime and sultry to heat laden belts delivering melodies oozing with attitude and vibrance.
Vocalist Laura Higgins speaks: “Pleasing the public as a woman means often covering up and suffering in the heat; but then, why should men get to walk around with their tops off? This song really highlights my frustrations with these double standards, drawing from the reality of women being slut-shamed when they dress to match the weather”
Incorporating influences such as Hiatus Kaiyote, ‘Cracking Weather’ keeps the listeners engaged with uplifting melodies, infectious riffs and an upbeat rhythm section; thus making this versatile tune a crowd hit in rock stadiums and dance clubs alike.
Coming hot off the back of her latest single, ‘Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing’ which garnered national coverage and airplay including features on Scenestr , Newcastle Herald & more, LaHi is ready to tackle 2022 in her signature fiery prowess.
