Who is Lucia?
Arguably Romania’s first Youtube sensation, Lucia had her breakthrough in 2012 with the single „Silence” – which brought her over 27 million views and legions of fans worldwide. Signed to leading independent label Global Records the same year, she went on to explore a modern indie-pop sound, carving a niche of her own and releasing her debut album „Silence” in 2015.
What does she sound like?
Through her soft, fragile vocals, as well as her heartfelt lyrics, Lucia manage to convey universal questions and experiences, making „Samsara” a tremendously relatable journey.
If you add the tasteful arrangements to the mix, with lush piano melodies, elegant strings and daring electro beats, you get a most relevant contemporary pop release, worthy of sitting next to Birdy, Aurora or Regina Spektor on the shelves of music enthusiasts worldwide.
Her new EP, “IMMERSIA”, is a pandemic baby, born as a result of the band’s need to reconnect with their audience through a release that would make people feel closer to them than ever.
Each song has its own sonic identity, with carefully crafted layers and a lot of heart poured into through Lucia’s vocals. “Simple”, the opener, is a quirky, bass-heavy tune, revolving around keyboards and a catchy verse section. “Who” is upbeat and electronica-infused, the closest to a “mainstream” synthpop sound but never straying too far from the alt-indie aesthetic of the whole. “Rogue” would work quite well on alternative radio, with a powerful, no-nonsense chorus and memorable lyrics.
