In one of our kitchen cupboards at some point in the past we stored a collection of rather delicious chutneys, one of which was made by Lucy Rose. Sadly it’s all gone now, but there’s hope of a refill; because Lucy is back out on tour in the UK this month. Of course there’s no guarantee that Lucy will be selling her produce on her merchandise stand like past gigs, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed.
We’ve also been keeping more than just fingers crossed for her new song to be as good as her chutney. Thankfully it’s pretty tasty. This one’s all Bombay Bicycle Club bounce and shimmy - a further slide away from her original more acoustic sound. Sure, it will probably annoy the folky purists but it will also probably put a smile on a few more indie / pop kids faces. Lyrically the song deals with those times when someone has done something that has upset or annoyed you, but then your eyes meet, everything is forgotten and it’s time to make up. The track, which is available to purchase on April 26th, is taken from Lucy’s forthcoming second album. Her UK tour starts on the 9th March and runs through till the end of the month.
