SINGLE REVIEW: Lucy Neville – Ransom
Over the past couple of years Sydney songstress Lucy Neville has been impressing me with her independently released electronic and indie pop fusion. “On My Own” and “Lady” were underrated pop gems that still deserve justice while her cover of Crowded House’s “Fall At Your Feet” went deservingly viral with over 5 million streams on Spotify. Her new single “Ransom” hears her continuing to explore the heavier electronic dance sound her last single “Waiting For You” explored. However the song falls a little flat with predictable production that has been created to appeal to the club scene. It’s less likeable than her early indie-pop material and is a little too commercial and gimmicky. However her vocal production has never sounded so polished as it does on this song, so that’s a positive! The lyrics are a tad cute with the exploration of originally falling in lust and then falling in love with someone. I just wish the production was less in your face and was a little more natural and less forced.
