Lauren Napier is an acoustic punk rock singer-songwriter from Berlin, where she writes for local publications and performs as Punk Rock Doll. She recently self-released an EP called ‘Void of Course’, a collection of acoustic tracks with what she describes as “pagan leanings” with mystical imagery that’s “certainly open to your interpretation.” ‘Void of Course’ has a powerful tranquility that’s not short on emotional rawness and vulnerability that creates Napier’s unique, but nonetheless punk, sound.
