You wouldn’t say that singer songwriter Lucy Aggett is only twenty two years old as her refined and delicate sound makes think of an old soul that has seen it all. The folk-inspired artist from Devon has been making waves the past couple of years through airplay on BBC Introducing and gigs at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend to name a couple. ‘Sixteen’ was released last month and is about reminiscing the simplicities of being younger and how quickly we’ve grown up. Her style is based upon folk music with contemporary sound links to Bon Iver and Sufjan Stevens.
About the single Lucy says: “While maintaining the rawness and honesty of my songwriting, I have used piano-fronted riffs and more live-sounding instruments in this song.” It is the strength she has put in that combines well with the delicacy of it and makes it sound like a field of sunflowers in full spring.
