EP Walkthrough: Banjo Lucia - Peccadilloes
Exciting new WA talent follows-up a string of awesome singles with her impressive debut EP and takes us through it, track by track
A month after we met the incredibly talented 19 year old singer-songwriter Banjo Lucia, today she unveils her debut collection of music in the form of the brilliantly titled Peccadilloes EP.
Possessing a deep appreciation and skill for the craft of songwriting that belies her years, creating deep, emotional music that combines elements of chamber pop, indie, folk and more into an intoxicating sonic cocktail.
Already making a name for herself with her live shows, Lucia drops her new EP fresh of the back of a tour supporting Stella Donnelly and playing festivals around WA, as she now shifts attention to supporting San Cisco on the Victorian leg of their national tour, as well as some more hometown/state shows (all dates below).
Of the EP as a whole, Lucia says “Peccadilloes is a collection of songs that detail various intimate facets of my own experience with grief, love and growth.” To find out more about each track, have a listen to Peccadilloes and read Lucia’s track-by-track walkthrough below!
Vines is a song about feeling too tired to do the things you know will help you. It’s about my experience of grappling with depression and the vicious cycle of lack of motivation feeding the depression and the depression feeding the lack of motivation.
That's Not Loving
That’s Not Loving is a song about realising that even though someone may have an explanation for their poor behavior, that doesn’t excuse it. It’s about learning that you can be sympathetic and have boundaries around how people treat you at the same time.
Lion Boy is a song about my brother and observing the complexity of the teenage experience. It’s about the fact that holding a deep love for someone often comes with an agitation and intensity that’s hard to navigate.
I wrote Leaving Again about moving from Switzerland to Australia and all the people and memories I left behind. It's about the combination of gratitude and grief that saying goodbye evokes, and the suspended sense of disassociation that can occur in the transition.
Last Song is a retrospective look at a relationship. It’s an attempt to acknowledge the complexity of what something was in order to move on.
