Beautifully bare, delightfully devastating and powerfully painful; Lucy Francesca Dron’s gut-wrenching new single ‘Liquid Numbing Pain’ is not for the faint of heart.
The Brisbane songstress has never let genres define her, as she melts indie-rock, lo-fi folk and jazz-style vocals into a stirring pot of skilful songwriting and spellbinding execution. ‘Liquid Numbing Pain’ is no exception as Lucy weaves a heart-aching tale through her lyrics, which explore the desire to escape from the painful emotions caused by heartbreak.
“This track is a raw and honest retelling of my own experience of intense heartbreak and loss.”
Leaning into her vulnerability, Lucy’s emotional strain is brought to the forefront as her raw, silky vocals move rhythmically across dulcet indie-rock tones. With the song’s second half simmering with a building rage, we are led to a deliciously chaotic instrumental and vocal bridge that will induce a sudden urge to scream and break things... but in the best, most liberating way.
As an extra treat, ‘Liquid Numbing Pain’ comes with the perfect video accompaniment, produced by Phoebe Faye & Johnathan Oldham. Following Lucy as she moves through stages of grief and heartbreak within the song, the revealing visuals only add to an already powerful track.
It's no secret that Lucy Fransceca Dron has been steadily making a name for herself, with the release of charming single ‘What Is Next?’ earlier in the year and now ‘Liquid Numbing Pain’, paving the way for highly-anticipated EP Leftovers, due for release in early June.
With everything coming together, Leftovers is set to be an impressive collection of songs exploring Lucy's coming-of-age journey, and we can't wait to get our ears on more from the alluring Lucy Francesca Dron and her band (comprising of brother and bassist Tom Dron and drummer Tex Keane).
But for now, 'Liquid Numbing Pain' will definitely tide us over as Lucy's striking vocals follow us into the night...
