Ciao (Live session)
A Lucy Dreams show is something one should have experienced. What sounds like the virtual brainchild of Tame Impala, David Bowie and Daft Punk hits the stage as a full-blown rock show. The band flirts live with the Alter ego from digital spheres, has inspiring messages for the audience and sends their catchy songs, including the internationally praised "Know My Number", emphatically towards the audience. In an extravagant golden suit and mask, signals and signs are being sent out kaleidoscopically on all frequencies and in all directions. Lucy Dreams on stage is an experience for ears, eyes and hearts.
Lucy Dreams is a dreampop trio hailing from the cultural metropolis Vienna and consists of David Reiterer and Philipp Prückl. Wait, trio? That is correct, because the essence of this band arises from a crystal ball that is seemingly enthroned above all their output. Lucy is an independent system of digital and analogue effects, which was developed by David and Philipp specifically for music production. Lucy can be understood as an A.I. - however, the connection between her and the two musicians of human lineage is a far more intimate one, as Lucy is deeply involved in the songwriting process. Nobel Prize winner and poet laureate Kazuo Ishiguro recently referred to his Klara as an A.F., an artificial friend, while tech magnates call their offspring X AE A-XII. So, at the very least, Lucy deserves the title of A.B., an artificial band member, whose shape gives her a minimum amount of plasticity.
