Laura Dre has announced the details of her hotly anticipated single Moving Spaces which is set for release on January 22nd through Outland Recordings, one of the world’s leading synthwave music companies.
Moving Spaces is the title track and lead single from her forthcoming debut album, produced by Dre and Robert Harder (Brian Eno, David Byrne, Sohodolls). The single can be pre-saved from today and follows the surprise New Year’s Day Spotify release of her cover of Depeche Mode’s Strangelove.

Laura says of her debut, “Life is different for everyone, so Moving Spaces has multiple meanings as we are all moving forward and backwards in life, especially when it comes to love & relationships. You can look at the lyrics from various perspectives and I hope you will be able to relate to it in some way”
Laura Dre’s poignant, but often sexy and thought-provoking electronic and contemporary synth pop, breathes new life into the ever popular and evolving synth and retrowave scene, and indeed into modern electronic pop itself. Influenced by the brooding voices of Shirley Manson and Alison Goldfrapp, Laura’s rare contralto voice is as reminiscent of popular synthwave counterpart Trevor Something as it is PJ Harvey’s.
No stranger to the stage and music business, Dre formed Vinyl Black Stilettos a decade ago with the song The Game being featured on the BBC3-produced serial drama Lip Service. The Pete Gleadall-produced track Electrical gained interest from Ridley Scott Associates/RSA Films who then went on to produce the music video. She has performed at some of the biggest LGBTQ+ music festivals worldwide and she opened for Kim Wilde at L-Beach.
While the ensuing pandemic has put paid to touring and festival plans, the London/Bremen-based German-Filipino singer and songwriter has already recorded a string of captivating electronic pop songs which will all form part of the debut solo album Moving Spaces, due for release in mid 2021.
