Hailing from a small town with a big clock called Ulverstone, Lasca's broad set ranges from the hauntingly delicate, to the groovingly heavy. In their performances, the spaces between Lasca's bird-like vocal melodies are filled with sexy psychedelic overdriven solos. Her delivery ranges from the confidently lazy to the intensely passionate.
