Sunny War - "Lucid Lucy"

Sunny War was born in Nashville but has been in Los Angeles for a while now. Those two cities truly flavor her music. Her latest single, "Lucid Lucy," has all of the Americana/folk that you would expect from Nashville, but covered in LA sheen. What's amazing about the sheen on the track is how minimal it is. The song is just Sunny War's vocals, guitar, and cello. Even with such minimal instrumentation, the song is lush and full sounding. The song is about someone who lives such a dull life that they master the art of lucid dreaming and begin enjoying their dream life more. It's a beautiful and compelling song, and a perfect introduction to Sunny War (if this is your first listen to her music).

You can watch the video for "Lucid Lucy" below. Simple Syrup is due out on March 26 via Hen House Studios. You can pre-order a copy on Bandcamp. For more on Sunny War, check out the artist's website.
