Manchester based indie-prog-pop outfit LUCIGENIC have confirmed details of their new single, ‘Hope’ – set for release on 19th February.
Drawing comparisons to The Velvet Underground, Blondie and Mazzy Star with their powerful, hypnotic sound; Lucigenic’s debut EP ‘1’ was released in 2020 featuring featuring three tracks with Spencer Birtwistle (Intastella /The Fall) on drums and three early tracks featuring original drummer Stewart Burnett (The Cheaters).
Now, following a chance meeting with legendary producer Mike Bennett (The Fall, Ian Brown) at the Trashed TV event in Manchester, the band have formed somewhat of a “supergroup.
Including Simon Wolstencroft (The Fall/Ian Brown), Dave Barbarossa (Adam and the Ants/Bow Wow Wow/Republica), Mark Refoy (Spiritualised/Spacemen 3), Steve Etherington (Rubettes/Sisters of Mercy), and vocal harmonies from Alan Keary, their forthcoming three track EP ‘Hope’ was recorded at FarHeath Studio in Northamptonshire.
Producer, Mike Bennett has worked his magic alongside engineer Angus Wallace, the same winning formula that produced acclaimed albums with The Fall.
A limited edition bespoke 10” vinyl of the three tracks recorded during their time at FarHeath will be available later in 2021.
