With the sweetness of bubblegum pop, the easy swagger of classic college rock, Phil Spector’s widescreen ambition, and the gritty rumblings of the best riot grrrl and grunge, LUCIA have won the hearts of music-lovers, critics and fellow artists with just a couple of EPs and a few years of relentless touring.
This is modern rock n’ roll driven by instinct alone. The perfect soundtrack for a teenage dream. From being discovered as a busker on the streets of Glasgow to playing with the likes of Black Honey, The Big Moon, Neon Waltz and Estrons, the rise of LUCIA has been resplendent. The Scottish four-piece, fronted by the enigmatic Lucia Fairfull, debuted their initial EP ‘Best Boy’ to rapturous acclaim, with praise arriving from numerous sources including by Wonderland Magazine, Drowned In Sound, NYLON, The Line Of Best, DIY, and DORK, with follow-up singles ‘Melted Ice-Cream’ and ‘Summertime’ also receiving regular airplay from BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Radio X, Amazing Radio and many more. The band have also performed at countless festivals in recent years, including SXSW, The Great Escape, Live At Leeds, Latitude, TRNSMT, and Boardmasters, as well as toured extensively throughout the UK.
