Arguably Romania’s first Youtube sensation, Lucia had her breakthrough in 2012 with the single „Silence” – garnering 25 million views to date and legions of fans worldwide. Signed to leading independent label Global Records the same year, she went on to explore a modern indie-pop sound, carving a niche of her own and releasing her debut album „Silence” in 2015.
Lucia’s anticipated second album, „Samsara”, released in 2018, establishes itself as a meditation on the nature of death and the cycles of rebirth, all seen from different perspectives. However, what could be a heavy motif for an indie / art-pop music album is approached in a way that is never obscure or heavy-handed. Through her soft, fragile vocals, as well as her heartfelt lyrics, Lucia manages to convey universal questions and experiences, making Samsara a tremendously relatable journey. If you add the tasteful arrangements to the mix, with lush piano melodies, elegant strings and daring electro beats, you get a most relevant contemporary pop release, worthy of sitting next to Birdy, Aurora or Regina Spektor on the shelves of music enthusiasts worldwide.
