Dream-pop songwriter Lucy Mason has released the first half of her debut album ‘Flashback Romance’ – it follows on from a stellar 2017 in which the London based emerging artist took significant strides forward. The new four-track is stocked full of Mason’s signature earnest writing style; where introspective lyrics collide with subtle, yet powerful, production.
“I spent a lot of last year thinking about when I was growing up and I found myself as what I can only describe as falling in love with old memories & stories that I’d forgotten all about. When so much had changed, I couldn’t help remember what everything was like ‘before’ and when I started looking back, I couldn’t stop. I really hope these songs take you back in time, whether it’s back to old memories with best friends or back to your first heartbreak or cigarette.”
“All these kinds of stories are tangled up in us somewhere no matter who we are or where we’ve come from & somehow in making these songs, they satisfied my feelings of nostalgia and made me happy but still somehow, remarkably sad. I called it Flashback Romance, as that’s exactly what writing this album was for me. I dedicate this entire album to my friends – To those I met at high school in England, to the friends I do life with now and most importantly, to the friends I’ve lost.” – Lucy Mason
