LISTEN: Lucy Gaffney - 'Send Me Away'

Back in April, I found (and loved) a track from Lucy Gaffney in my inbox. The Belfast-born, Liverpool-based songwriter had just released Can't Escape, her first solo track, having been part of the band Southern previously. She's back with Send Me Away via Frictionless Music. Really digging this one. Only her second single, she's already played alongside Bill Ryder Jones and She Drew The Gun and had radio support from BBC Radio 1 and local BBC Introducing shows. On this track, her Southern bandmate and (actual) brother Thom Southern plays electric guitar and bass, with Jim Sharrock on drums, and The Coral's James Skelly producing. 

Talking about the track, Lucy shares that "for me the track really encapsulates the dreamy element in the idea of love, getting lost in intoxicating moments and the electric excitement of the unknown. With the recording I wanted to capture the garage band rawness from when I wrote it in the rehearsal studio. There's an honest naivety to it that fizzes with electric quirks and kinks from start to finish, igniting an in the moment carefree edge."
