Laurie Vincent, one half of punk duo Slaves, is a musician, songwriter, artist, designer, and also runs his own clothing label Young Lovers Club.
Slaves has been built on a rejection of rules and it's served them well since the release of their Mercury nominated Gold debut album 'Are You Satisfied?' in 2015. Along the way, they’ve won the hearts of The Streets’ Mike Skinner, the Beastie Boys Mike D, won multiple NME Awards, headlined Alexandra Palace, had Skepta join them on stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, and toured with The Prodigy, Kasabian, Jamie T and Wolf Alice.
Their third and latest album ‘Acts Of Fear And Love’ smashed straight into the top ten and garnering some of the best reviews of the band’s career to date with NME describing it as “the most accomplished of Slaves’ three albums, switching things up and pulling off new sounds without losing sight of the band’s DNA.”
Laurie started drawing and painting from a very young age, and has since gone on to develop a very distinctive style. Inspired by post-modernism of Warhol, the street art of Basquiat, the expressive, political work of Keith Haring and the anarchic, DIY ethos of Raymond Pettibon.
