Laurel is the 21-year-old London-based singer, songwriter, and producer making folky alt-pop that we can't get enough of. Continually stripping herself back, giving us more and more of her inner most feelings with every track, Laurel recently shared the personal song "San Francisco" and now, i-D is pleased to share its visual.

"I was kinda living the story for a while with someone. They had moved out there for a bit and I was back home in London. The feeling of missing someone is the worst. The whole time you spend thinking about being with them means you aren't really present where you are, but you're not with them either, it's almost a limbo state of mind. So in the midst of all of this 'San Francisco' came out, in a couple of hours, and I didn't change it at all after that. It's like everything I had been feeling had been building up forever and just came out almost perfectly how it needed to."
