GET TO KNOW: Lucy Lane

After delivering a wealth of fascinating releases throughout last year, fast-rising artist Lucy Lane is continuing her vibrant ascent as she shares her impactful new single 'I Don't Want To Be Angry'.

Capturing a wonderfully fresh and euphoric alt-pop aesthetic for her latest outing, 'I Don't Want To Be Angry' makes for a brilliantly bold and soaring listen. With her stunning vocal performance riding across a euphoric production from start to finish, she is returning with one of her most mesmerising efforts to date here.

So with the new single available to stream now, we sat down with her to find out more about her origins and influences over the years.

What was the first band or artist you fell in love with?

Britney Spears. No one else comes close. I remember hearing her voice before seeing her Baby One More Time video and it was love at first listen. It was so deep and sultry and unlike any other popstar I’d listened to. I was hooked.

Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?

I used to sing Celine Dion songs with my best friend to anyone who would listen in the school playground, usually a sweet girl called Eliza. We liked to pretend we were horses afterwards.

What has been your primary inspiration in writing music?

Freedom and self-expression. I felt completely and utterly miserable when I was working a 9-5 in advertising. It was so close to the artistic life I wanted, but ultimately, glossy sales. I wanted to take everything I had inside of me and turn it into something beautiful or weird or interesting. I had to go on a long journey of freeing myself from my old life in order to get here.

What is a song you wish you had written yourself?

Wicked Game. It’s just a perfect song. So simple yet moving. Or something that blends genres and pushes boundaries. Blondie Rapture is such an underrated song in that sense - we move between so many moods in a 5 minute epic of disco, new wave, pop and hip hop. And it’s just cool as fuck.

Any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?

Releasing my first song. I’d take away the anxiety attack haha. I was a wreck. I wrote my first song at 31 and released it at 32. No one had heard my voice. It was so exposing. I’d try and enjoy it a little more. But to be honest, I wouldn’t actually change it. It’s all part of the *process*.

Which artist would you most love to share a stage with?

If I could bring him down from heaven, Freddie Mercury. Otherwise, Stevie Nicks. Mother and Father, right there.

And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well?

So many! I think Perfume Genius is phenomenally talented. I’d love to do something experimental, in his world. Describe was a big influence for I Don’t Want To Be Angry.

Where do you see yourself in five years time?

Being asked where I see myself in five years and hopefully having no clue.
