Ahead of their performance at this year’s The Great Escape, we caught up with Scottish outfit LUCIA to find out what makes them tick…

The countdown is on to our favourite Brighton weekend! At this year’s The Great Escape, Creative Scotland will host two showcases to shine a light on ten emerging artists from the Scottish scene. From 12pm on Thursday 9th and Saturday 10th May, Creative Scotland will takeover One Church on Gloucester Place, presenting shows from ALLIGATOR, Aaron Smith, Cloth, Walt Disco, Heavy Rapids, Tamzene, Kobi Onyame, The Snuts, OK Button and LUCIA who we feature in this latest In Short.

The perfect soundtrack for an angsty coming of age movie, LUCIA are a Glaswegian four piece on the rise. Bringing together catchy melodies, deft guitar riffs and a pinch of classic rock swagger, LUCIA are fast carving their own unique position in contemporary rock and roll.



You can catch LUCIA at The Great Escape at the following stage times across the weekend:

FRIDAY 10TH MAY 1.45PM @ ONE CHURCH
FRIDAY 10TH MAY 7.15PM @ COALITION
SATURDAY 11TH MAY 8.15PM @ THE OLD MARKET

‘Blueheart’, the new single via Sweet Jane Recordings, is out now. The latest output was produced by Jim Abbiss, of Arctic Monkeys credits. Check the follow up to 2018’s Cheap Talk EP below…
