Lucigenic are a Manchester based band formed of members of The Fall, Republica, Spiritualized and Sisters of Mercy.
They released their debut EP ‘1’ in 2020, ‘Joy’ is their latest single, and is the title track of their upcoming limited edition vinyl EP that is set to be released later this year.
Singer Lucy Davies channels Debbie Harry-esque vocals on this alternative rock track with an incredibly catchy chorus which soons gets stuck in your head after a few listens. Inspired by the simple pleasures in life, this single is sure to bring a smile to your face.
It is refreshing to hear something with an upbeat, positive outlook in a sea of heavy emotional tracks. ‘Joy’ has the perfect balance between being slightly grunge tinged and having a catchy poppy vibe which will most likely appeal to a wide audience.
