Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys
Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys — trip-hop / art pop music project from Berlin, Germany.
The group, fronted by South African born artist, Lucy Kruger, create music that is full of atmosphere and intensity.
In April this year the band released, ‘Teen Tapes (for performing your stunts)’ - a follow up to their previous record ‘Transit Tapes (for women who move furniture around)’ - and the final in their series of tapes. The trilogy, which began with the introverted collection of lullabies, ‘Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls’, documents a growing desire to play. There is a relinquishing of control that happens throughout the course of the three records, both in the sonic landscape and in the stories brought to life through the lyrics.
The band has been touring the albums throughout Germany and Europe over the last year, performing at the likes of Rheeperbahn, Fusion, Maifeld Derby, Wave-Gotik Treffen, South of Silence, Immergut, Left of The Dial, and Synästhesie.
After releasing the third and final album in the 'Tapes Trilogy' in April 2022 and touring the albums extensively through the summer, the band are shifting attention to their upcoming album 'Heaving' which will be released in April next year.
The range of material and storytelling captured in the trilogy, and the addition of new material from 'Heaving' have given the group a chance to explore a live set that drifts between introverted and ecstatic.
