Another L chapter (remember – there ain’t such thing as too many elles): Lucy was introduced to me by Too Funk SistazSinaya. She (Sinaya) said something like: “what I like about her (Lucy) is that she seems to not give a damn shit about what others think. She wears and performs whatever she likes, too. Many women in rap don’t do that. We are too afraid of what others might think and of embarrassing ourselves.” According to that attributes to LL could be ‘distinct’, and ‘brave’. hmm, let’s say avantgarde (only once, promised).

 

The first bit I heard was Poison and it blew me. Not only because someone had puked into my heart just recently at that time, so that the lyrics spoke right through me as I literally felt poisoned. That’s actually true. But no: I was drawn somewhere I haven’t been before – through a spiral. And that is what is to be said first about Lucy Love: she runs her own universe. And by that, I don’t mean her being running her own label Superbillion, which she is, too. What I’m trying to say is that she runs a lot of borders. She is a Grenzgängerin, so to speak (in german). Soundwise for sure, as she spans the gap of dance music and HipHop. But also with her visions and styles as well as with her approach to the music-business. “Everything I do is hands on, like Do It Yourself”, she claims in an interview (Grunge Cake, see below).

 

Graphics are important to her he|art. You’ll see that with the extensive video productions that constitute a big share in their production. Also, Lucy Love – as a band, not to forget the producer Yo Akim – put a lot of effort in their live shows: they pull off spacy outfits,  somehow queer. Also the lights are super central to their performances. Like that, they rocked stages from the Ladyfest Oslo to the South by South West in Texas (US). I feel them, Lucy: Love.

 

 

post scriptum: Lucy Love feels related to swedish Robyn, artwise and signed Linkoban to her label Superbillion last year.
