Hailing from Belfast, now Liverpool based, Irish songwriter Lucy Gaffney reveals new single ‘Send Me Away’, out today via Frictionless Music.
An imperious dream-pop tune, ‘Send Me Away’ embraces contrast. Lucy’s voice rests transcendentally on a motorik rhythm, whilst luscious background synths combine with at times spiky guitars. The persistent tension and release paints a deep picture; everything is set up for Lucy to deliver the infectious hooks for which she’s quickly becoming known.
Thematically it tends on this airy edge implemented by her vocals, as she explains:
“For me the track really encapsulates the dreamy element in the idea of love, getting lost in intoxicating moments and the electric excitement of the unknown.”
