Lucy Sugerman has released her latest single “Paralysed”, her newest tongue-in-cheek break up song from her debut EP hurt that’s man made out November 18th. The track lets people into her world through relatable tales of her struggles and triumphs in romance and growing up, showing that they are not alone and cathartically capturing the spirit in learning from your own experiences.
“Time moves dreadfully slow when you're 17 and devastated over a boy.” Lucy says, speaking on the track. “The poor guy didn't even do anything wrong. I'm just glad something cathartic you can dance and scream too was born out of a period in my teens of being so upset.”
"I wrote the track on my first ever writing trip to Melbourne. I’d gotten broken up with for the first time that year and it was my first year out of school, so I went into all the sessions armed with things to write about. I couldn’t stop singing about the breakup - it felt like I was stuck in time, and stuck in my hometown - all things that reminded me of this boy. All my friends were getting stuck into real adult life and I wasn’t doing much and everything felt like it was terrible and wouldn’t let up. ‘paralysed’ is the most literal and diaristic song on my EP, and arguably has the saddest lyrics, despite Joel and I picking a fast tempo, writing with major resolving pop chords and Joel layering up the fun guitar-based production. I guess now I can laugh about how sad I was, and I have a bunch of songs I’m proud of to remember that period of my life."
Bold and unafraid to speak her mind, twenty year old Lucy Sugerman’s addictive and youthful energy perpetuates her music, even in her most vulnerable moments and we can’t wait to hear what’s to come on Lucy’s debut EP hurt that’s man made.
