Jayson checking in with my DJ pick this week from Nashville transplant Lucie Silvas. Check out her new single “Kite” off her forthcoming album E.G.O. available everywhere Aug. 24. Don’t miss Silvas perform at Fire on the Water Festival Aug. 18 in Gallatin, Tenn. Learn more and buy tickets here.
With a building sheath of synth and down on it groove, Lucie Silvas digs in on “Kite,” the reckless kind of women who knows no fear. Pounding, pumping, thumping, this is a dance song about a woman getting gone, an admonition to a lover that shows the New Zealand/United Kingdom-grown songstress isn’t afraid to thrown down.
Not that everything the dusty blond lifts her voice to lands that aggressive. For the irrepressible Silvas who can tempest and coo, it’s about hitting the emotional bull’s eye that lends an immediacy to the songs on E.G..O, the utterly independent project that follows her critically acclaimed Letters To Ghosts. Listen to “Kite” below and let us know what you think!
