REVIEW: Lucie & The Robot - 'Beyond Now'
Berlin based artist Lucie & The Robot creates music to tell her own stories. Founded by Lucie VOX, the young creative brought on drummer Paul Richter and pianist Hannes Marget to help bring her illustrious soundscapes to life.
Recently releasing “Beyond Now”, the track is a glimmering electronic haven - transporting you straight into Germany's teeming capital city. Emerging from an unhealthy relationship, “Beyond Now” describes the gaps between past, present and future - reforming and reestablishing a sense of self.
“We feel like we are in a vacuum that prevents us from moving on from the past to be fully present in the now or that we have fled the now for a future we can’t reach”, Lucie offers. “Either way, there is something we left behind.It is not there anymore but we still look back at it and see it lying there, just out of reach. We can still hear it laughing and sometimes scream in the distance. It’s not a piercing sound, it is just a faint echo. We remain passive, because we don’t want to approach it anymore. But we also can’t turn around and walk away.”
Drawing inspiration from contemporary artists such as Flying Lotus, Björk, Sia and 80s synth band Depeche Mode, Lucie is an enthusiastic consumer of modern pop music.
