El May opening for The Rosebuds at the Media Club in Vancouver Thursday night.
El May is actually Lara Meyerratken, an Australian singer/songwriter, musician and visual artist currently living in Los Angeles. On this, the first night of her tour with The Rosebuds, she led a four-piece band through songs from her second full-length, The Other Person is You, which is officially released Aug. 26. For one song, the duet “Diamonds, Girl”, she brought up a friend named Hannah, whom Meyerratken said was studying psychology in Vancouver. The singer also called her music “psychology pop.”
El May self-released her self-titled debut in 2010. She has also worked with Ben Lee, Crooked Fingers, Luna and Nada Surf.
