‘There’s noise coming from Scotland that can’t be ignored right now—it sounds like classic, unadulterated rock and roll, and it belongs to Lucia’ – NYLON
Bubbling under the surface of the city’s DIY indie scene for the past year, Glasgow’s LUCIA releases her new single ‘Melted Ice Cream’ on Jan 12th 2018. Mixing the bubble-gum aesthetic of The Ronettes and Best Coast with the seething punk attitude of Bikini Kill, LUCIA channels relatable simplicity in her lyrics, detailing the trials of a doomed teenage friendship and angst across Spector esque production.
‘Melted Ice Cream’ is accompanied by a self-produced video, showing LUCIA‘s vision for the project extends beyond the music and will further be supported by two London shows on Jan 11th and 25th. Future dates include a hometown date supporting Neon Waltz in March, When In Manchester in May and a UK tour with The Ninth Wave later in the summer. Festivals include Live At Leeds, Liverpool Sound City and Songs from Northern Britain with more dates being added next year.
Discovered as a street busker in the streets of Glasgow, LUCIA has supported the likes of Black Honey, The Big Moon and The Undertones as well as head turning appearances at Scotland’s T in the Park and inner city Glasgow festival Tenement Trail. Following the release of her ‘Best Boy‘ EP on Glasgow indie label Dead Beet Records, LUCIA won the adoration of music fans across her home country as well as receiving glowing praise and support from the likes of NYLON (NYC), The Line Of Best Fit, DIY and BBC Radio, culminating in a performance at London Fashion Week and a sold out hometown headline at The Berkeley Suite. Live favourite ‘Saturday Is Dead’ was supported widely by Spotify and included in the New Music Friday playlist.
