CDs and digital download available here
"Sounding like the lovechild of David Lynch and Björk, Laura Sheeran is taking her exceedingly weird musical experiments to new levels. In this follow-up to last year's often uneasy-on-the-ear Lust of Pig and the Fresh Blood, Sheeran dabbles in haunting yet alluring experiemtnal melodies. Rather than portray her as a wailing banshee, What the World Knows unveils a delicate siren with a knack for the edgy, complex, and unique. The standout Forever Love shows Sheeran is a talented vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. Hurricane, with its harp intro and medieval tones, is just as accomplished while REDLIGHT evokes Sonic Youth and early PJ Harvey." - Sunday Times, Culture magazine
"A cracking artpop album"
- Hotpress ****
"A sound midway between the claustrophobic dispair of PJ Harvey's White Chalk and the daring, pared-back inventiveness of Fever Ray. Her songs display a lightness of touch that's remarkable." - The Irish Independent ****
"If ... you're after something quite singular, special and spectral - gem-sized songs imbued with throbs of edge, grace and style - then you'll go for this in a big way" - The Irish Times ***
