I’m Lucia, 23, from Germany and I record and write music in my bedroom with my dog in the background.
I’ve been writing since I can remember and was playing in a few bands before I recently started publishing some of the songs I’ve written. After school, I was traveling for a few years and it really inspired some point of view I talk about in my songs. Since then they’ve been on the local radio a few times and my neighbors sometimes complain about the noise. I also study a lot to be done with university hopefully before my fifties.

 

 

LYRICS:

 

No need to sleep
How do I breathe?
When it’s all unknown
Repeat, repeat
My eyes won‘t
That I’m on my own
Cause it’s all unknown
Is this what we’re running from
Holding dust before it’s gone
Searching to find
That we’re nothing in time
Guided by whoever took our pride
Now it’s gone
Cry for home
Somewhere you’ve never belonged

 

Using our youth
We become more immune
To who we really are
Simply playing our parts
Hiding from time
Hiding somewhere behind
These excuses for my
Fading visions of Life

 

Adding up new breaking parts
Cause it’s all I’ve known
Spin in circles to escape the dark
Is this all I own
Are we on our own?

 

Losing our youth
Trying to shelter from who
Life would turn me into
Not enough time to choose
Hiding from time
Hiding somewhere behind
These excuses for my
Fading visions of life

 

Wondering when
Is it all gonna end
Soon it all will be gone
Before it’s even begun
Silently fades
Into ashes and days
Turn to months
Turn to years
And regret‘s left of fear

 

Losing our youth
Trying to shelter from who
Life would turn us into
Not enough time to choose
Hiding from time
Hiding somewhere behind
These excuses for my
Fading visions of life
Hiding from time
Hiding somewhere behind
These excuses for my
Fading visions of life
Hiding from time
Hiding somewhere behind
These excuses for my
Fading visions of life

 

 

Tell us how you build up the tune for this song.
It started with the melody of “All I own” in my head from which the rest started coming together. The songwriting happened very fast and the melody somehow built itself.

 

Tell us how fans are reacting to your music.
I’ve gotten really interesting reactions. Many people wrote that this usually isn’t their style of music at all but for some reason they really enjoyed the song. I think people can find themselves in it really easily and if they can’t yet, at some point in life I’m sure they will.

 

Tell us your point of view on the quality of production of today’s songs to old songs and point out what you think has changed.
I think these days it’s so much easier to get a decent quality production by yourself without having to be a massive producer with a 1 million dollar studio. I see many people recording their music by themselves simply in their bedroom with the gear they saved for by working somewhere but it surely got a lot easier to get a decent-sounding production without spending a fortune.

 

Tell us any interesting experience in your music career that is significant.
I realized that I could never write to my full potential when I’m under a lot of academic stress or put pressure on myself to write. So when I had a four-week break from University once and realized how easily everything came together I dared to publish something, which was very scary but a really good experience.

 

Tell us how you come across the lyrics of this song.
It started with a lot of Anatomy exams… I was overwhelmed by the number of things that needed to be done in order to maintain my studies and keep life going as it was designed to be and underwhelmed with how most I wanted to get out of my life started to slip away at the same time. And then I got really frustrated with aging and how all these doors that seemed to simply always be there started to close.

 

Tell us what triggers your creativity.
I get very creative when my life is either moving forward or falling apart. I have trouble being creative when I have to learn a lot (for uni etc., not life lessons). What also always triggers a whole lot of creativity is experiencing heartbreaks or a lot of rages, so the times I was really frustrated in relationships (not just romantic ones) probably got the most and best songs out of me.

 

Tell us how you generate musical ideas for your composition.
It really depends. Most of the time I improvise a song for about seven or more minutes then build from the best parts of that improvisation. Sometimes I have a melody somewhere in my head. Sometimes I have some sort of emotion that wants attention and it’s a little hard to describe. But sometimes everything just comes together like in a puzzle and the songs write themselves and then other times I replay the same 4 chords over and over and get sick of my own melodies.

 

Tell us your greatest song and state the reason.
I think many times you hear your own songs so many times that it’s hard to distinguish whether they’re good or not. They’re just there. At one point I loved the catchy melody of “The Game” then I enjoyed the hope I felt when listening to “Steps” and right now I just love the mood “Visions” puts me into. Production-wise this is by far the best one.

 

Discuss how you compose this song.
The song came to life within seven minutes of improvising and recording. Later on, changing a lot of the improvised lyrics. I had the guitar riff in mind before and started playing and singing along. It had to be done in a short timeframe because I have trouble writing music with people I know around and my flatmate had just left and I knew he would return soon. It all flushed out of me, because the topic was very present at that time in my life, so the song pretty much wrote itself.
I then did some ‘pre arranging’ that was really rough and done on my iPad with GarageBand which I sent to a producer I found on Google, asking if he was interested and then exchanged the whole process via email.

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name and the title of the album.
I’m Lucia and people usually pronounce it wrong. It’s pronounced “lucy a” however most people say “Lutshea” which really sounds wrong to me. I don’t have an album yet. But the single is called “Visions” because it’s about the visions we had when we were younger.

 

Share your press release and review with us.
After releasing her first two acoustic songs, Indie-Folk artist Lucia shares ‘Visions,’ a song that sets the mood for finding strength and going on new adventures, while lyrically focusing on ‘Visions’ getting lost in our routines.
To find the right sound, Lucia worked with Icelandic producer Arnar Guðjónsson, who produced songs for artists like Kaleo and Axel Flovent. ‘Visions’ is currently featured on Taxi Music’s June favorites.
With “Visions” she points out how daily routines and societal structures keep us from our own development, which she realized while studying for an Anatomy exam, that she luckily passed after writing a few other songs about procrastination and wasting time.
