Review: "girlfriend" - Luci

“girlfriend” by Luci is a song about wanting a girlfriend (hence the title), but it can be a lot of work to have one. Having that feeling of someone next to you and doing romantic things with them sounds amazing, right? But it can be a lot of responsibility because their feelings are in your hands. We all have that longing for love and sometimes want that perfect relationship, but the possibility of it not working out may make you want to stay single. There’s this back and forth about having that desire to be with someone because it makes you feel good when you're loved by someone. There are pros and cons when it comes to being in a relationship, but also with being single. Luci describes that being alone is okay but also having a relationship is great too.

The first lyrics that start the song can be relatable for many people: “I kinda want a girlfriend / But I kinda don’t” which is the main focus of the song. Luci made great points about wanting a relationship but also not needing it, but she misses the moments of being in one. Her vocals are raw, and the listener can really feel and hear her being indecisive about what she wants. At the end of the song, she says, “But I kinda want a girlfriend / but then I don’t” with a chuckle, and it creates a bit of sassiness because it shows that she is still undecided. The instrumental music of this song is minimal which helps us focus on the lyrics, and it’s easy to because her vocals are clear to understand. Luci’s vocals in “girlfriend” are different from her other single “narcissist” which shows that she knows how to control her voice and create a different sound through each individual song of hers. You can tell that in “girlfriend,” her tone of voice has emotion with a mix of seriousness and attitude.

Luci is a queer singer/songwriter, producer, and performer based in Los Angeles. She first started off in the music world as an electronic music producer, producing her bass-boosted soundscapes for crowds of people. Luci explored her artistic capabilities and dug into singing and songwriting. She’s now expanding her artistic skills with EDM using them to enter into the pop music world and showcasing her voice. Still preserving her musical past, dance music and alt-pop music have a major influence on her sound. She has over 200K monthly listeners on Spotify who love her diverse variety of music. If you want an artist with a mix of EDM and strong vocals, Luci is your girl!
