Lucia & The Best Boys have dropped new single 'Let Go', their "most honest and true" song so far

Lucia & The Best Boys have dropped their new single, 'Let Go'.

Following on from the release of their 'Eternity' EP at the start of this year, the track arrives alongside the news that they'll be supporting Dream Wife on tour next spring.

"I have always enjoyed writing songs that are clear and to the point but I think Let Go is the most honest and true I have ever been in a song," the band explain. "Last year I had a tough time trying to put my thoughts into comprehensible words because I was emotionally confused and sometimes lost. This led me to try things out, like writing on a piano which I never really do as I've always started writing songs on a guitar. Somehow this allowed these words to spill out of me whilst sitting at a piano, after a very long and frustrating time of finding what I wanted to say.

"The following week I was in LA and I showed what I had written to my friend Alex Greenwald of Phantom Planet. He loved the song and so I finished it with him out there at his house. We had no proper studio set up and originally this was meant to just be a demo, but at the time the song felt so present to me that we decided there was no way doing a re-recorded version would have the same emotion. It was almost overwhelming as once we had finished it and I listened back to it, it was such a weight off my shoulders, and a slight sense of relief as I felt like ah, this is what I've been wanting to say the whole time."

Give it a listen below.
