Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys - "Heaving"

"Heaving," the latest single from Berlin's Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys, is an interesting mixture of sounds that might not seem like the best matches, but end up working out perfectly. The new song leans heavily into a New Wave and industrial sound. It's a beautiful but intense version that sounds very Depeche Mode to me. But "Heaving" feels more modern than 80's and early 90's New Wave, and has that alternative folk/rock/pop sound we love from artists like Lucy Dacus and The Beths. As dark as "Heaving" might sound, it does have more than a bit of a light and pop side. Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys have created this interesting sonic delight that embraces the past while moving towards the future.
