10th December | Bristol Library

In a city like Bristol it’s easy to get lost in the underground music scene, so when someone like Lucy Rose announces a small, intimate gig at the city’s Central Library, it’s hard to not get excited over an evening of beautiful folky melodies and thoughtful lyrics.

She was first scouted out by Bombay Bicycle Club’s frontman Jack Steadman who asked her to perform on their 2010 acoustic album, Flaws and has since performed with the likes Daughter, Ben Howard and Noah and the Whale. Following the release of her debut album Like I Used To in 2012 Lucy Rose has built quite the reputation as the queen of sad, poignant songs but her latest album show’s us she is no one trick pony.

Showing a much more experimental side to her music, her 2015 album Work It Out combines digitised beats with her delicate voice which adds a more upbeat, electro pop sound to her music especially in ‘Like That’ and ‘Cover Up’.

I know most people wouldn’t want to spend their Saturday night in a library but I think we can make an exception here and after all, there’ll be no one telling you to sit there in silence.

Check out the live session of ‘Shiver’ below.
