Product Description

Product Description

Opening with the powerful, urgent drumming of "Red Face" before segueing into the first single she ever released, "Middle Of The Bed", Like I Used To is the result of almost five years of open mic nights and tireless touring both as a vocalist for Bombay Bicycle Club and as an artist in her own right. The unconventionally structured, tempo-hopping "Lines", with its complex time signatures and roaring choruses; the slide guitars and Sufjan-esque harmonies of "Shiver"; the brooding, atmospheric "Place"--the entire album is testament to Lucy’s desire to produce as organic a record as possible.
For an artist described by The Fly as “disarmingly candid”, recording was never going to happen in a sterile inner-city studio, with Lucy instead choosing to lay down the tracks at her parent’s house and the village hall in her native Warwickshire with the aid of her band mates and producer extraordinaire Charlie Hugall (Florence + The Machine, Ed Sheeran). Single "Bikes" displays a terrific show of melody and an almost frustrating catchiness that echoes throughout this stunning long player.
Lucy’s journey began when she hopped on a train to London, leaving behind the house she would return to years later to record Like I Used To. Striking out for the big city armed with an acoustic guitar and an unstoppable dedication, Lucy played every open-mic night imaginable. She met people on the way who are still with her now and with their support and her graft she learned the ropes. Her debut album is a confessional of disarming intimacy and candid truth.

Very rarely do you hear a voice that gives you hope that there is still original natural talent out there that hasn't been manufactured or messed about with. This is a wonderfully melodic and at times quite complex and original album, delicate and haunting at times. Simply wonderful.

Heard Red Face on the radio one time and I've been listening to it on youtube ever since. Got this album on the day of release and it's fantastic. One of those rare albums that you can listen to for ages and still not want to skip any of the tracks. Want to hear her live!

She reminds me a little of Florence and a little of the Bombay Bicycle Club with a whole lot that is her own. Thoughtful, quirky, different and very enjoyable. Saw her in concert last night and was amazed at the strength of her voice, perhaps not quite captured on the album. I would definately recommend it

I am a fan of Bombay Bicycle Club (the band from which Lucy Rose started with and accompanies the lead singer)and so when Lucy started doing her own thing, My mum bought me the album for my birthday. The songs are beautifully written, both lyrically and instrumentally, combining indie with pop and folk vibes. I am a big fan of her relaxing, uplifting and truly loveable music. Definitely recommended.

First heard about Lucy Rose through reading up on Rae Morris. Thought I'd check this album out - glad I did, it's got all the ingredients for a great album. Chill-out acoustic, some funky beats, great simple production and of course Lucy's wonderful, whispering but beautifully tonefull voice. At times I can hear a bit of influence re-Bombay Bicycle Club, who she has been associated with, but that's a good thing! Her songs are hauntingly melodic with lush harmony. Can't wait for the next album!

A very enjoyable debut album, the overall acoustic emphasis nicely steered away from a certain comfort and predictability on some tracks by some well constructed percussion and electronic (and assorted other) interludes and deviations, not to mention some quite brave changes in tempo which work really well - and still there's that silky voice in control throughout. I found myself likening the album to earlier works by the likes of Feist (e.g. 'Monarch'), Suzanne Vega etc and it wasn't surprising to learn that Joni Mitchell was an early influence on the artist. Really nice to see and hear another refreshing new talent emerge from the sea of commercial-driven dross that surrounds it. Check out the excellent live performances from Lucy on Youtube - always the sign of a true talent.

I bought this CD after purchasing and becoming a fan of Bombay Bicycle Club- Lucy Rose features as an accompanying singer on the 'A Different Kind of Fix' and 'Flaws' albums. I think this is one of my favourite CDs, and I have quite a few! If you like Indie and/or Folk music, this CD would be perfect- she has a beautiful voice, and some very original, catchy songs. Definitely worth it!Like I Used To

After stumbling upon Lucy Rose while on a couple of websites I immediately loved her songs. While only listening to a few songs before receiving the album, I was sure that I was going to enjoy the whole thing. Definitely give this album a listen and buy it because she is up there in the new crop of breakthrough artists.
