Rising R&B star Lucy Park Shares New Video for Single “True To You” and Reveals Debut EP ‘Before I Speak’
The new music video for her single “True To You” was Directed by Alia Becker, the DIY-esque video follows Lucy and After Dinner Records co-founders Anoop D’Souza and Chase Brill traversing around LA. A reflection of Lucy’s spirited nature, the “True To You” video offers viewers a glance into the excitement and synergy behind the writing process for ‘Before I Speak.’
“We bought an old VHS camcorder on Craigslist and filmed ourselves doing random things around L.A.,” says Lucy. “The camera broke three or four times but it was still a great time. Alia Becker did a wonderful job of capturing everything and editing the graphics. So excited to share it with the world!“
Her forthcoming debut EP ‘Before I Speak’ is a vivid introduction to the 22-year-old LA-based artist, whose British and Asian-American roots inspire Lucy’s sound. Initially written in London, “Cold” is a timeless record that shows off Lucy’s songwriting capabilities right out of the gate. “True To You” reminisces on flirtatious nights out, while “On God” and “Somebody Else” is steeped in reflections on spurned and lost loves.
Lucy shares, “I focused on capturing a specific mood with each song and wanted the experience of listening to the EP as a whole to connect the moods together into a sequence or story. Using imagery and experimenting with different vocal tones was really fun to play around with while figuring out how to make this happen.”
“After All” is a two-pronged rumination that looks back at a younger, more innocent Lucy before gazing into the rising R&B talent’s promising future. “The order of the songs is meant to follow the trajectory of a relationship from start to finish”
