About

Lucky Soul are back with stunning new single 'No Ti Amo' - the first from their forthcoming third record, 'Hard Lines', released August 11th on Crystal Paris Records. Celebrate the launch of the album with Lucky Soul's first London show in 7 years with and expanded line up, DJs and exclusive playback of tracks from the album, plus support to be announced. It's been seven long years since Lucky Soul's critically acclaimed second album, 'A Coming Of Age', and a time - personally, musically, culturally - of often-extreme change. 'No Ti Amo' is an unexpected but effortlessly assured return for Lucky Soul: unfurling slowly over seven, sun-kissed minutes, it's as much a love-letter to 'Tango In The Night', Nile Rogers or Italo disco 12"s as it is rooted in the less-exotic realities of modern South London life (in which the record was meticulously self-produced). From its pizzicato strings to looped synth riff, 'No Ti Amo' is a perfect (re)introduction to a band who seem intent on trying something new, and also something wholly for themselves: the results feel escapist, romantic, and creatively rejuvenated. Whilst the surfaces may shimmer, at its heart 'Hard Lines' is a record of frustration, anger, and - through it all - hope. Soaring torch-song '(Hurts Like A) Bee Sting', completed to the backdrop of Brexit in 2016; the tougher, afrobeat-funk of 'Livin' On a Question Mark', meanwhile, began life as the riot police marched through Camberwell in 2011, and discusses a timeless sense of disillusionment. Yet here are songs, too, of staying together, and pulling the people that matter close to you (see the sultry, progressively-stormy soundscapes of 'One Touch', or the bittersweet pop rush of 'Too Much').
