Ah, Lucidity is made up of Lucy Mabbott (Hong Kong) and David Qadir (Dublin), based in London. Their self-produced debut album, ‘Lives of Others’, is a fusion of contemporary folk and alternative rock, influenced by artists such as Eddie Vedder, Neil Young, The Cranberries and Ocean Colour Scene.
Lives of Others, is essentially a collection of stories about people and their relationships with one another. All songs were originally written and performed acoustically and most have remained so in their final album versions. Some have been embellished, albeit sparingly, with a few choice additional elements. The aim throughout recording and production was to retain a minimalist quality, to preserve the authenticity of the original recordings so far as was possible.
With an intangible 90’s vibe, and with the best of traditions that artist like Natalie Merchant brings to the table, Ah, Lucidity releases angsts and concurrent emotive maladies with soothing lyrical vibes and thoughtful attentions.
‘Lives of Others’ is out now.
