LCY Is Very Online

To celebrate the new single, we slid into LCY’s DMs to talk about their earliest internet memories and Cocteau Twins-themed memes.

London-based producer, DJ and visual artist LCY has taken us further into their post-human AI universe with new single shhh” and the announcement of their forthcoming 6-track EP Pulling Teeth on 22 April. The follow up single to the bassy, metallic and ethereal audio-visual offering “Garden of E10” which introduced us to the main character of this sonic story, Ériu, “shhh” is a richly textured and percussive track full of secret mechanical communications.

Growing up participating in traditional Irish music and dance but with an estranged family of traditional Irish musicians, on Pulling Teeth LCY gets set to harness their desire to connect with something both familiar and alien in culture that holds both belonging and un-belonging in their consciousness.
