‘Damaged Goods’ is the first single from Sydney’s 20yo Lucy Neville, after the release of her EP ‘Lady’. It sees Lucy take a darker, more stripped back turn as she gets under our skin and into our deepest thoughts with her story of heartbreak and the notion of being ‘Damaged Goods’. It’s an interesting side-step after her first two singles ‘On My Own’ and ‘Lady’, glittering electro-pop tracks that saw Teen Vogue describing her as ‘ the latest breakout artist’, and Lucy reaching #13 on the iTunes electronic charts with her debut release. ‘Lady’ has also hit over 100 000 plays on Spotify, seeing Lucy reach beyond Australia and gain fans around the world as she is touted as an artist to watch. ‘Damaged Goods’ sees a darker side of Lucy, and comparisons to Lana Del Ray and Meg Mac can be made, as her vocals and the song itself take centre stage.
Lucy explains,” Although the original inspiration for Damaged Goods was taken from an everyday conversation, the experience of writing the song was raw and cathartic and unlike any other song writing experience I've had. This single is a bit of a different direction for me, but I wanted to follow my intuition and produce the song in the style that made the lyrics hit home.”
Apart from playing the piano and the guitar, Lucy started her singing career as a member of the Australian Girls Choir, singing to people like Barack Obama, Oprah, and Queen Elizabeth, so harmonies and layers are a part of her musical history. They are woven all throughout ‘Damaged Goods’ and add depth, layers and a certain eeriness to the song.
The music video is very stripped back, and Lucy explains, "We wanted the video to feel as raw and unapologetic as the song itself. There's something almost eerie about it, and I love that it's so haunting - like I'm trapped in my own mind. I really pushed myself performance wise to get into the headspace of the song. There's nothing else in the video aside from myself and the darkness, so I had to give it everything I had to tell the story."
Lucy Neville is an artist that writes from the heart, and ‘Damaged Goods’ will creep into your mind and under your skin. Ominous, alluring and raw, ‘Damaged Goods’ shows the depth of this young artist as she writes about what she feels.
