Lucia are gearing up for a busy summer of festivals and new music: "All will be revealed soon"

Dork faves Lucia are about to make the pretty mammoth trek from Glasgow to The Great Escape, down in (hopefully, keep your fingers crossed) sunny Brighton. Having not long finished up a stint in the studio with legendary producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele), they're preparing for a jam-packed summer of festivals and new music.

Hey Lucia, how's it going? Is life in Glasgow good at the mo?

Hey, life in Glasgow is always great.

It's been a few months since you dropped your latest single 'Blueheart', what have you been up to since then? Touring and stuff?

We have been writing lots of new music for the very near future, and have just come off tour with our lovely pals Whenyoung and will be jumping back out with our fellow Scottish lady Honeyblood in June.

Have you had a chance to think about your next batch of material, or is that still a little way off?

We have been thinking a lot, trying lots of new things, and can't wait to share it.

Will you be recording with Jim Abbiss again do you think? What was it like working in the studio with him?

We would all really hope so. He is extremely talented as is his engineer Ed Hartwell. They created the dream team and made the songs exactly what they should be.

"New music is on the way..."

Do you think you'll be debuting any new tracks during your upcoming festival sets?
Yes, new music is on the way we are so excited to bring some new energy to the live shows too.

Are you guys ready for festival season? How do you prepare?

Lots of antihistamines and pot noodles!

Did you go to many festivals before you were in a band and getting booked to play them?

Yeah, I went to lots. My first every festival was Rockness in Scotland. They get made ten times better when you get to play them; it's always a good feeling to see your name on a poster next to some of your favourite artists.

Which are your fave festivals?

Latitude and All Points East were our favourites last year. We are heading back to Latitude this year and have made sure nothing else is on that weekend. We are also super excited for The Great Escape; it's always filled with inspiration as all the bands come together and we get to see a lot of our friends who are all currently on tours etc.

What else are you guys up to over the summer, anything fun?

We will be supporting Miles Kane in our hometown at SWG3 Galvanizers Yard on 7th June, which will be our biggest Glasgow show to date. We have a few other exciting things in the pipeline; all will be revealed soon!

Anything else we should know?

Our 'Cheap Talk' EP recently came out on vinyl! It's available at

Lucia play The Great Escape (9th-11th May), Truck (25th-28th July) and more.

Hype List 2021: Olivia Dean

Hype List 2021: Olivia Dean

Walthamstow's Olivia comfort in music more so than Dean wears her heart on her sleeve; every tune an introspective masterclass in storytelling.

BENEE: "2020 has been a bloody shitter"

A rare bright point in a pretty damn difficult year, BENEE's arrival has been a serotonin shot in the arm. With her debut album finally here, the future looks brighter already.

Shame: "I promise you, we'll do Brixton Academy soon"

The wait for shame's second album may seem to have lasted longer than it actually has. as they stand on the edge of a huge 2021, we get ready for a record that isn't supposed to be funny, but...
