laur is a brooklyn-based artist who creates ethereal dark pop music. originally from vermont, laur crafts otherworldly sonic landscapes inspired by dreams of the natural world through a sensual, emotional lens. her debut single “hades” was released on April 22, 2022 along with a music video that laur directed. laur’s debut album is slated to be released in fall of 2022.
HEXTERIA was born in 2017 with the release of Passion Aggressive, an experimental 6-track E.P. with lo-fi charm and the frightening intensity of someone returning from a years-long hiatus due to burnout and disillusionment. Taking the bones of her acoustic, lyric-driven past, Tonya Pieske formed a new and eclectic solo project that folded in the unfamiliar territory of electronica and dreampop. Drawing inspiration from a range of artistic mediums and genres, each release has become more complex and cinematic in theme and instrumentation.
With the most recent release of Erotic Thriller in 2022, the inner world of Hexteria was expanded to include a narrative version of the album in the form of a companion book (physical and audio), which incorporated other complimentary poetry and prose. Erotic Thriller is a story that can be read, heard, and most importantly, felt.
