It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Lucii has decided to give us a Halloween treat- another track to add to our spooky playlist. “Till The Day I Die” has released ahead of the artists upcoming four track EP, Wicked, set to release on Wakaan October 23rd. 2020 has been A YEAR, but at least it’s been a good one so far for our alien queen Lucii. She made waves last year after becoming the first female artist to release through Wakaan with her single “Neptune.” We LIVEEE for the success of an amazing female artist! She continued this momentum earlier this year with two very successful collabs with Champagne Drip and Sam Lamar which have collectively had over 1.3 million streams across all platforms.
“Till The Day I Die” is a mesmerizing mid tempo love song that Lucii wrote for her girlfriend, Rezz. In a Facebook post Lucii wrote, “While writing this song I was feeling such intense feelings of love, but during a dark time in the world. I wrote at least 15 love songs but this one was my favorite.” The lyrics aren’t the only element of the song inspired by Lucii’s alien bae – the wonky mid tempo synths in the drop are a beautiful tribute to Rezz’s signature style for sound design. We’ll have to wait until the 23rd to see if this inspiration carries through the rest of the tracks on the Wicked EP.
If you love Halloween, aliens, hypnotic drops and psychedelic wubs; give “Till The Day I Die” a listen. Make sure to check out my review for another song I’ve added to my personal spooky playlist, the Rezz inspired the ALKM3 remix of “Sometimes” by LovelyBones.
