It's been a hot minute since Glasgow coughed out an era-defining band.
The city's music scene seems to be in the throes of another revolution, though, with countless new acts coming our way.
Four-piece LUCIA match buzzsaw pop to edgy gothic thrills, sluicing together the unashamedly classic and the defiantly modern.
Produced by Jim Abbiss, new single 'Summertime' is a bold statement, almost cinematic in its lust for beautiful grandeur.
Blessed with an incredible chorus, each note feels like a defining release, with 'Summertime' nailing the impish thrill of a band on the rise.
Frontwoman Lucia Fairfull explains: "'Summertime' was influenced by classic love films and my years as a teenager. It comes across as a happy bubble-gum dream pop song showing my love 60s girl groups like The Ronettes and Lesley Gore, but the lyrics portray a more dark and grunge story of summer flings ending in broken hearts.”
Going further she says: “People are going to get a surprise when they hear new music because we have stepped things up further now. The new single is a proper summer track. It’s simple, classic and upbeat. It’s the most dreamy song on the EP for drinking in the park with your pals.”
