‘Summertime’, the new single from Glaswegian indie rock four-piece LUCIA, produced by Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele) and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Florence) is released August 16th on Sweet Jane Recordings. Though covering the age-old theme of failing summertime romance it does so whilst remaining packed with breezy teenage glee.

Listen here:

Speaking about the new single front woman Lucia Fairfull explains, “’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.”

Going further she says “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.”

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 releases 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 The Undertones, their DIY spirit and knack for a dreamwave banger now finds them working with Arctic Monkeys and Florence + The Machine collaborators and coming to a town near you.
