Artist Interview: No Sleep For Lucy
Tell us about yourself and your music
No Sleep For Lucy is an Swedish alternative Arena/Rock band. We have played together for about 5 years and we can still remember when we first met “Lukas” our singer. We had been tipped off from “Christian”(the guitarists) sister that she knew a good singer we should audition. We wrote 3 songs that day and 2 off them is on our album “Until The End” thats soon is going to be released. Writing music has always comed out naturaly since all off us three is listening to the same music, mostly melodic pop/rock bands from USA. We have heard from people trying to describe us that we sound like “Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World, 30 Seconds To Mars” etc.
Talk to us more about your latest release
We have released 3 singles so far, “Feel Alive”, “Going Down” and lastly “Closure”, all of which have been voted into top-5 most wanted songs on Sweden’s No. 1 rock radio station, “Bandit Rock”. The success also led to the band being nominated for a “Bandit Rock Award” in the category “This year’s breakthrough” in 2015. We are soon going to release a new single “Don’t Let Go” before we release the album “Until The End”. That we had the privilege to write with “Stevie Aiello” the bass player in “30 Seconds To Mars”.
What inspired you to write this release?
For the upcoming single release “Don’t Let Go” we wrote that song in “Hollywood Hills” with “Stevie Aiello”. The inspiration was that we had the pleasure to write the song with a member from a band that has been an inspiration for us for years. And that we had an amazing view over LA while doing it just made it better.
Any plans to release a video?
We have recorded a video for the next single “Don’t Let Go” but haven’t got an release date yet. Hopefully in the end of february.
Any plans to hit the road?
We are finalizing everything for our album release so no planned giggs yet. We gonna have an release gigg as soon as we have a date for the album.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
This field we need to better in we think, there is so much that can be done but you need time. We always focus on writing music. What we have done is to sign us up on the most common social media pages for music like Reverbnation, Soundcloud etc. And we have been lucky to get featured on several on them. What stands out from the rest is that we have been lucky to get some great co-writes name on the music we have written like, Tommy Henrikssen(Alice Cooper, Bowling For Soup, Simple Plan), Mark Holman(Halestorm, Daughtry) and Stevie Aiello(30 Seconds To Mars).
Who have you been listening to lately?
