Following on from the release of their much-loved EP Eternity from the start of this year, Lucia & The Best Boys now return with a far more solemn new offering in the form of Let Go, released on May 22nd.
The song sounds so good. I like the delicate vocals. Besides, the grooves are smooth. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the atmospheric hooks and uplifting elements.
Speaking about the track, Lucia says: “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. 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.
“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’.”
