LUCIA's new single 'Summertime' is a seasonally appropriate banger

LUCIA have dropped a brand new single.

Titled ‘Summertime’, it’s taken from a new EP, ‘Cheap Talk’, which is set to arrive this October.

Speaking about the track, frontwoman 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.

“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. Its simple, classic and upbeat. Its the most dreamy song on the EP for drinking in the park with your pals.”

LUCIA recently played Dork’s new music festival Etc. They’ll be back when they support Folly Rae as Dork Live! hits Leeds this October. You can find full details of that, and get tickets, here.

Check out ‘Summertime’ below.
