Popup: Lucy, What You Trying To Say?
Two songs here, nothing more and nothing less from this Glasgow pop/art/rock band which starts off with the title track. It’s a rather lo-fi pop number that sounds like a leaner, mainstream Dogs Die in Hot Cars without the art or angular accents. It’s at best a decent song but doesn’t really grab or get one’s goad. From there, the closing “In Her Day” is actually a remix, but has a bit more edge than the first track. It’s extremely difficult to get a handle on a band with only two numbers offered, but they are nonetheless decent tunes.
