We Interviewed singer/songwriter Lucy Kruger, about her debut album Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls, her first recording with her band The Lost Boys, plus filmed live session of the album track “Cotton Clouds”, and a cover The Velvet Underground’s “Candy Says”.
“Candy Says” is one of four songs sung by Lou Reed in the voice of a female character, in this case, the transgendered Andy Warhol muse Candy Darling.
Lucy Kruger’s new album is aptly titled, as her voice is soft like Cumulus cloud-cast, or whispers by nights lit only by fireflies—not unlike the effect caused by listening to the works of Nick Drake’s Pink Moon, but with the all the dark intrigue of Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave.
Watch our interview with Lucy below along with a special live session we filmed this summer:
Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls is available now through Unique Records.
