Introducing brand new bedroom pop act Lucy Blue...
KEY TRACK: See You Later
LABEL: Fishbowl Productions
MANAGEMENT: Outer Space Music
What impact do you want to make?
“I want to make just one kid feel the way my musical heroes made me feel about music. I don’t know what the best thing about my music is, that’s for others to decide.”
Who are your biggest influences?
“Some of my biggest influences musically would have to be Van Morrison, Cocteau Twins, Prince and Joni Mitchell. Also, I just want to be like Gwen Stefani during No Doubt. I’m so inspired by film as well, it’s so intertwined with music for me. Visual artists like Harmony Korine and Davide Sorrenti inspire me a lot.”
Tell us about your debut single...
“See You Later is a song I wrote two years ago after leaving school. It’s about loss and watching someone die.”
How do your songs come to life, what’s the process like?
“My musical process can differ a lot of the time, but I would say I’m a songwriter before a singer, so lyrics are always my favourite part. I wrote the majority of my debut EP in my bedroom when I was 16 and 17. I made demos at home and that’s when I first started getting into producing, it was just a really good creative outlet that I needed. The songs just show how or what I was feeling at that time in my life. I guess they’re the purest form of songwriting I’ll ever have.”
Do you have big plans for 2021?
“My EP is coming out this year, which I’m so excited about. I’m really passionate about this project as it’s songs I’ve been writing since I was 16, so I can’t wait for the world to hear it.”
