The latest from Giulia. isn't reinventing the folk/pop genre. "Lucky Ones" is an impossibly charming little folk/pop song. And that's all it needs to be. It meanders between both folk and pop seamlessly. Giulia. just hits this wonderfully perfect sweet spot, making this light feeling, upbeat, cheerful song that's going to get through to even the crustiest grumpy music snobs out there.
What makes the upbeat nature of the song more impressive is that it was written and recorded after Giulia. moved from New York City back home to Toronto during the pandemic. Giulia. explains:
“Not to deny the harm [the pandemic] has caused, but I have never felt closer to my family, and I’ve never felt closer to myself - because of all the time I’ve had to spend alone, getting to know myself better. And truthfully, that in itself is enough to make me feel like the luckiest person alive.”
