Divus Julius presents: LUCIA

Originally starting life as the solo project of frontwoman Lucia Fairfull around five years ago, the singer soon realised that “having constant pals around you, cheering you on” was far more fun and thus was born Lucia, the band. Influenced by the strong women of the ’70s (Joan Jett, Debbie Harry et al) and grunge’s female protagonists, as well as more pop-leaning stars such as Lana Del Rey and classic girl group The Crystals, it’s in the way the group combine these influences with more cutting take downs of life’s harsher truths that sets them apart.
