Wakaan newcomer Lucii touts vulnerable acoustic version of ‘Neptune’

Hailing from Orlando, Lucii is one underground bass music artist who was a likely culprit to emerge from the strong heavy-bass scene out in Florida. Splashing onto the electronic scene as a homegrown vocalist/guitarist, the Wakaan signee made her first foray into DJing and production in 2017. Lucii then made her Wakaan debut with “Neptune” this past spring, in which the label newcomer brought forth an intriguing melodic touch to her bass-heavy compositions with lyrical vulnerability.

A short time ago, Lucii received overwhelmingly positive feedback from her growing fanbase when she posted a short acoustic version of “Neptune” to her socials. Thus, after much fan and critical praise, the full acoustic accompaniment was born. Filled with emotive depth and impeccable songwriting, Lucii’s lyrics float above her stringent guitar strums as a raw and honest manifesto about some past relational loss. It’s vulnerable, imperfect, and exactly what a good artist lays out on the table.

“This track means so much to me. At the time I wrote the original, I was feeling very alone and was in a dark place. The track came out and exceeded my expectations, in fact it’s actually my most well known track! Even though I live in the electronic world, I appreciate many different kinds of music. I’ve started many of my tracks sitting in my bedroom strumming an acoustic guitar and singing. I’ve been writing songs that way since I was 12, but have always been shy and never wanted to let anyone hear that raw side of my music. I randomly got some inspiration and posted a video on Instagram of me playing ’Neptune’ on my guitar. I received overwhelmingly positive response by being honest and open and taking a risk. My management asked me about re-releasing the track as an acoustic version which I was still unsure on. I thought about it and decided that I wanted the world to see a different side of Lucii – so we decided to release the track. It’s something I never thought I would do, as its always been an escape from reality. If you take away anything from reading this or the track I hope its this – You can do anything. We all have fears, we aren’t perfect, we are flawed and that’s ok. It’s what you do with those feelings and how you you cope. This is my way and why I’m positive not everyone will like it, I’m also very excited to share to those who do” – Lucii
