With their new EP ‘The State of Things’ set for release on 9th October, Lucia & The Best Boys are unveiling their latest single ‘Perfectly Untrue’.
“Perfectly Untrue was written a couple of weeks after I wrote ‘Let Go’,” Lucia explains. “This recording is in its original form, which Chris Greatti and myself powered on an all nighter till 4am, as I was leaving LA the next day. It’s funny to listen to them both back to back as it shows the many mixed emotions I was going through during heart-break, feeling strong and capable one minute, then distraught and confused the next. The only way through seemed to be to pretend that everything was fine or perfect whereas in reality it was Perfectly Untrue. I can definitely say now looking back that this is the worst solution ever, but also I know that it is just a coping mechanism that people use as escapism. When you are in a weird or dark headspace you see many versions of yourself that you didn’t even know existed. ‘Perfectly Untrue’’s ‘Happy Go Lucky’ sound portrays the fake joy I pushed myself to feel in order to avoid the sad truth, which is displayed in the lyrics that are also coated in glitter and glamour - ‘dressed up in gold’ and ‘dance until I die’.”
