Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys are an art pop ambient noise band based in Berlin. The group, fronted by South African born artist, Lucy Kruger, create music that is full of atmosphere and intensity.
In April this year the band released, ‘Teen Tapes (for performing your stunts)’ – a follow up to their previous record ‘Transit Tapes (for women who move furniture around)’ – and the final in their series of tapes. The trilogy, which began with the introverted collection of lullabies, ‘Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls’, documents a growing desire to play. There is a relinquishing of control that happens throughout the course of the three records, both in the sonic landscape and in the stories brought to life through the lyrics.
New song ‘Heaving’ opens with a self-possessed pulse and a vocal sample that sits somewhere between a release and a reaching, pulls the listener into a distinct and surreal space – one that is both existential and immediate. There is a physicality to the sound that grounds the more elusive threads, in both sound and subject matter. The range of material and storytelling captured in the trilogy, and the addition of new material from ‘Heaving’ have given the group a chance to explore a live set that drifts between introverted and ecstatic.
