Rosalie is the focus single of Lucy Dreams’ debut LP Götterfunken. Rather than being the name of a person, Rosalie is the optimistic description of a future state. A tomorrow worth driving to. The concept of Lucy, the artificial band member, is a gate to this tomorrow, a projection surface for euphoric dreams. Apart from being a helping hand in their production of music, she is the outfit’s digital companion on this trip forward, a medium for ideas to evolve.

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.
