Magic Moon’s bluesy ballad “Lucy” reunites psychedelic rock with its soul, an essence that has long been lost to consumerism. The track is truly an embodiment of desire as its steady tempo drifts into surges of intensity marked by Timo van de Ven’s impressive organ work and Walter Pols’ seductive vocals.
The song’s sudden dip into fast-paced rhythms revitalizes the track’s sound, rewriting its formula to keep it from becoming predictable. Although the track isn’t quite as groundbreaking as Magic Moon’s previous single “Nightcrawler”, “Lucy” still meets the high expectations many have placed upon the band as they strive to bring a fresh sound to psych-rock.
