Lecx Stacy’s second official single is a departure from bright bedroom pop and an introduction into something grittier.
Brought to life by piercing guitars, driving basslines and haunting vocals, Lecx Stacy’s newest single manages to capture your attention almost immediately. The surging power of the guitar’s feedback creates an undeniably anxious atmosphere that is flowing not only through the song’s production but through Stacy’s delivery and lyrics. This raw moment of pure vulnerability is incredibly enduring, creating an intimate moment between the listener and the artist.
