Living up to its name, this brand new track ‘Summertime‘ from Glasgow based indie quartet LUCIA is very much an upbeat, summery tune. ‘Summertime’ has a very familiar feel to it but it’s incredibly catchy with its breezy vocal hooks and sunshine tinged melodies. The track is fizzy but definitely doesn’t fizzle throughout, blooming especially for its zesty choruses.
Speaking of the track, front-woman Lucia Fairfull has said: “’Summertime’ was influenced by classic love films and my years as a teenager. It comes across as a happy bubble-gum dream pop song showing my love 60s girl groups like ‘The Ronettes’ and ‘Lesley Gore’, but the lyrics portray a more dark and grunge story of summer flings ending in broken hearts.
People are going to get a surprise when they hear new music because we have stepped things up further now. The new single is a proper summer track. It’s simple, classic and upbeat. It’s the most dreamy song on the EP for drinking in the park with your pals.”
LUCIA have had a huge year having played over 50 gigs including many festival appearances already. The band are set to play live throughout the Autumn including various festival appearances including Electric Fields, British Sound Project, Neighbourhood and 2Q.
