God in the room

OLDFASHIONED ROCK STAR LP’S GIGS FEEL LIKE A RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE. CARRIE LYELL FALLS UNDER HER SPELL

LP

LP might be small enough to pop in your pocket, but she seems seven foot tall as she swaggers into our interview, coffee in hand, with an effortless cool. Her trademark black curls bounce gently as she walks around the room, talking enthusiastically about her gig the night before at Koko in London – “It’s a beautiful venue,” she says, pacing aimlessly. “It feels so… communal. I like it when I can see everybody and everybody can see me.”

An old-fashioned rock star yes – compared to the likes of Joan Jett, Patti Smith and Stevie Nicks – but LP, real name Laura Pergolizzi, is throughly modern. A viral sensation, her latest offering has been streamed more than 120 million times on YouTube. She’s no brooding rockstar caricature either. Warm and friendly, the 36-year-old New Yorker – dressed in dark jeans and a navy blazer – is chatty and full of smiles.
