Ash Gee, Connor Barratt, Jack Barratt and Luke Willis of Lucid Hoops, break into new worlds with punk framed and riotous fervor in ‘Get Me Out Of Here’.
“What started as a gritting yelling of “get me out of here!” over heavy guitars turned into an aggressive outburst aimed at the pressure to pursue what is safe over the risk of pursuing one’s riskier dreams. The fear of never taking the leap, keeping within the safe comfort circle you’re used to drives the lyrics home about being terrified of waking up one day and realising you’ve done nothing with your life.”
Scared of it all. Scared of existing. Scared of not. There’s only one way to solve it, and say ‘f*ck it’ and push forth. There are multiple ways to live in this world. But only one chance to make it count the way you’d like.
Based on a name that Ash coined for herself in her childhood, Lucid Hoops draw influence from music of the member’s early years; 1990’s and 2000’s alternative rock, injected with as much energy you can think of, in a modern-day context. Bands such as Paramore, Radiohead, Hole, No Doubt, The Smashing Pumpkins and The White Stripes are key influences.
Lucid Hoops highlights issues of mental health, societal issues and relationships into song. They’re not afraid to get personal in their storytelling with songs based on the band’s real-life experiences.
The gang is from Australia, and excitement is their middle name.
