“The Ocean at Night” is the first release from “Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls”, a slow burning dreamscape album by Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys!
Lucy Kruger is a singer/songwriter from Cape Town, South Africa who now lives in Berlin. Her music focuses on the bare bones of the songs, a slow burning psychedelic folk that is both intimate and ambient.
The new album is a follow up to her first full length, “Summer’s Not That Simple” and is meant to be a companion for difficult evenings – lullabies for the restless.
The album was recorded just before Lucy moved from Cape Town to Berlin in May last year. She had been quietly spinning a soft web of songs and wanted to capture the feeling before leaving.
The record was made with a very specific listener in mind. For the last few years Lucy has gone to bed listening to the stories and sounds of songwriters that have became close companions, both challenging and nurturing her and eventually gifting her rest. She wanted to give something of the same to those who might need it.
The arrangements are minimal and leave space for Lucy’s voice and guitar which are present throughout – reflecting, resisting and trying to reason with conflicted thought.
The full album will be released through Unique Records on September the 27th.
