Lucy Whittaker Releases New Single “Touch”
Lucy Whittaker, is back with a feel-good floor-filler, that’s both raunchy and raucous. Released 29th July and streaming now.
Touch’ is a high-octane pop track about desire. The 4×4, club-ready beat propels the track into a catchy dancefloor hit. The lyrics ‘nobody has to know’ suggest anonymity and a forbidden longing that adds to the track’s raw energy.
In Lucy’s word: “Touch is about sex, and unapologetically so. I wanted to write a track where I really own my sexuality – I’m not holding back. As women, we are so often made to feel that we shouldn’t be sexual, or should keep quiet about it, and to me this is wrong on so many levels. I
wanted Touch to convey the power I felt in the writing process, so we made the beat and bassline heavier than the songs I’ve released previously – it’s a vibe.”
“As an LGBT person, my sexuality was something I tried to ignore and hide for so long, and Touch is a nod to that. The contrast between the explicit verses and elements of secrecy in the choruses (‘nobody has to know’) was something I wanted to play on, as I’ve definitely felt these
conflicting emotions in the past. I feel like my LGBT fanbase who’ve also experienced this will be able to relate.”
The single is a hard-hitting delectable arrangement with such a harmonious deliverance. A pure, perfect, honest and raw pop track. Lucy is growing as a musician and continuously pushing boundaries, her craft needs to be commended. She’s an incredible talent fusing heartfelt messages with modern and direct pop.
Reeling from her recently remixed 2018 single ‘Who’s Gonna Know’ ft Yizzy, the Mike Maggo and Martin Badder release ‘I Can’t Take My Hands Of You’ was featured on the official Spotify House playlist, as well as being featured by Martin Garrix on his radio show. The London based artist has pulled in featured from Gay Times, The Q Review, and more for her single ‘Miracle’ which was released in June of this year.
