UK alternative pop trio Lycio gives us the ultimate track to dance our heartbreak out titled “Somebody,” a gut-wrenching anthem filled with inescapable hooks that capture the pains of unrequited love. It’s the type of song that makes you wanna cry, but still dance incessantly as you indulge in the melancholic bliss of hopeless romanticism. Stream below:
On the track, Lycio’s Genie Mendez shared:
“I actually thought I’d try a different lyrical approach with this song. I’m rarely one to write about romance and our songs are usually entangled with expressions of my own mental health. So to have such a lyrically open chorus where I’m so clearly talking about unrequited love is definitely a first for us. Although I’ve still kept the verses dark and mysterious, this song is definitely about wanting someone so bad but them not quite wanting you back. Then you get this really catchy chorus, and I did want it to be as catchy as a Jess Glynne or Fickle Friends track, ‘cause they’re really good at grabbing the listener like that. So I hope you all enjoy listening to it the way we enjoy performing it.”
Lycio are vocalist Genie, keyboardist Charlie Kellie and drummer Alex Lowe who are currently based in Birmingham. They have performed in various major festivals across the UK and have made waves across press for their works. Stay tuned for more beats from the three.
