SXSW Review: LUCY, March 14, Elysium

A Taiwanese singer song writer born in 2000 (making me feel old), Lucy started off the Taiwan Beats night at Elysium with a handful of catchy tracks that were highlighted by their playfulness and accentuated with Lucy’s charm on stage.

Featuring one word song titles like “Cactus” and “Cocktail”, she got the crowd into each track. A surprise for me was her take on Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” – transforming the tune to a dramatic sweeping ballad. Most of the time I hate covers that transform the song, but this one I appreciated.

The fun set ended with the song “Oh Hey”, which had a nice call and response and absolutely sounds like a hit. Check her out.
