High Lucia has released his second EP entitled Upfall on Lex. A collection of delicate compositions of modern electronica that develop his penchant for lush and filmic soundscapes. Throughout the EP High Lucia brings his own vocals further into the foreground, leading the 6-tracker into ethereal territory. Collaborating with Half Scottish, Half Sudanese Londoner Eliza Shaddad, ‘Arid Land’ propels the latter half of the EP with lush electronics and vigorous songwriting.
High Lucia speaking to Clash Mag;
‘Upfall’ came from a collection of tracks written over a span of 18 months, drawn from various perspectives of what I considered to be a confusing and shifting period as I progressed through my time at university. These tracks are responses to a prolonged observation of how I felt about my then-current place of living, Brighton, a town which I think is full of frustration and confusion, and how the implication of people’s movement transpires as a sense of place. I spent a lot of my time documenting my interpretation of these settings through photos, and in a way the music is a sonification of the textures and colours in these images.
