Laurence won the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with “Arcade.” His performance of the song at the competition was hailed as “powerful” by The New York Times and “haunting” by The Guardian. “Arcade” – which has amassed more than 250 million combined global streams – took the No. 1 spot on Spotify’s Global Viral chart last year and has since received radio airplay in 58 countries. The track recently went viral on TikTok following its use in the “Dracotok” meme, which pairs “Arcade” with a deleted scene from a Harry Potter film.
appears on Laurence’s debut album, Small Town Boy, which was released earlier this month by Capitol Records. Throughout the album, his powerful, expressive tenor flows from a gentle whisper through fluttering falsettos to a full-blown force. But the scope of the music never overpowers the intimacy of the stories Laurence tells.
“I see music as a platform to tell stories that might be a bit sad, but always have this hopeful ending or hopeful core inside of them,” Duncan Laurence says. “I think trying to see the positive in something negative gives you a certain strength through life.”
Combined global streams of Laurence’s songs are approaching 300 million, including over 25 million for the anthemic “Love Don’t Hate It.” Prior to the global pandemic, Laurence played the prestigious Pinkpop Festival and over 30 European headline shows.
– praised by leading outlets like TIME, Wonderland, V Magazine, Nylon, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview Magazine, GQ, The Guardian and more – hails from Asbury Park, NJ, where she cultivated her passion for music and unforgettably candid storytelling. After graduating from NYU’s famed Clive Davis Institute for Recorded Music, FLETCHER carved out a distinct space for herself in pop music with her 2019 debut EP you ruined new york city for me (Capitol Records). The EP featured her breakthrough hit “Undrunk,” a track that spent several weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, scored the #1 spot on Spotify’s Viral Chart and emerged as the fastest-rising song at pop radio from a new artist in the past five years.
Since arriving in September 2020, FLETCHER’s new EP, THE S(EX) TAPES, hit No. 1 on iTunes across all genres and has earned critical acclaim from Teen Vogue, SPIN, PAPER and many other outlets. Her new single, “Bitter,” a collaboration with Billboard-charting artist Trevor Daniel and produced by Kito (Diplo, Empress Of, Aluna George), has amassed over 70 million global streams to date.
