FRESH: ‘Rip It Off’ – Lucy Warr

Lucy Warr releases “Rip It Off”

UK singer Lucy Warr releases her new single, “Rip It Off”, today, her third of 2020 since her debut, “Energy”, earlier this year. “Rip It Off” combines sweet, talky vocals along with a power punching chorus of synth and electro pop noises in a stop-start fashion that will have you hooked with intrigue from the outset. Produced by London based producer Tokøta, “Rip It Off” will take you up down and sideways as it showcases Lucy’s growing talent and artistry to full capacity.

Born in Somerset and now based in London, Lucy made her debut with the powerful “Energy” which introduced her telling the story in speech and singing the chorus, very much in folk style, but leaning more towards electro-synth-pop. Lucy teamed up with Italian born singer Daniele Alan-Carter for the quaint “Saving Grace”, a duet of similar if not more down-tempo style and a must hear just for the epic choruses.

Lucy tells us of “Rip it Off”: “I have become more aware of my mental health over the past few years and that I seem to tip from one extreme of the emotional scale to the next, sometimes hour to hour. I can feel powerful, strong and fierce, ready to take on the world, to then feeling completely overwhelmed by the complexity of life and the world we live in, unable to feel the need or desire to even get out of bed. Lockdown and the pandemic has hit so many of us in different ways, and for me it has sometimes escalated this feeling of inadequacy, and imposter syndrome has been cropping up at every turn. I want to normalise what goes on inside our brains, to expose the stigma around mental health and what it means to be human. ‘Rip It Off’ is about releasing that mask, to stop pretending, and being okay with sometimes, not being okay!”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
