Following on from the release of EP ‘Eternity’, Lucia & The Best Boys now return with a different kind of beauty upon beauty.
“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,” admitted vocalist Lucia Fairfull. “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.
Recorded in LA with producer Carlos De La Garza (Paramore, Wolf Alice, Best Coast), the ‘Eternity EP’ sees Lucia and the Best Boys (formerly LUCIA) dive headfirst into their 80s inspirations. Over the past 18 months the band have played hundreds of live dates including; sold out headline dates in London and Glasgow, supported the likes of Dream Wife, The Snuts and Miles Kane and industry showcase festivals including SXSW.
Lucia continued: “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’.”
Earlier this week Lucia & the Best Boys were announced as main support for Dream Wife on their 22-date UK and European tour in April-May 2021.
