There is poetry in every cell of Lucy's body. What a beautiful interview!
One of my dearest friends and favourite collaborators, Lucy Kruger joins us from Berlin for this episode.
She speaks of how music strings memories together, being well behaved, music as a career, and the importance of consistency in engaging with yourself, the world and your craft.
Lucy Kruger is a musician from Cape Town, South Africa, who now lives in Berlin. Her solo performance focuses on the bare bones of the songs, a slow burning psychedelic folk that is both intimate and ambient.
In September 2019 she signed with independent German label Unique Records and Schubert Publishing to release her second full length album, Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls, a follow up to her debut release, Summer’s Not That Simple.
‘Though the album is called Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls, the music feels like lullabies for Nick Drake, as Lucy treads the same deep waters as the singer from the late 60s and early 70s, utilizing her voice and guitar to delicate effect—where the volume is performed in a soft tactile caress of fingers on skin or fretboard.’ - Post-Punk.
Lucy is currently working on her next album.
