We dare you to listen to this track a few times and not become addicted. I.AM.L aka Lucy May’s track ‘Lionheart’ is emotionally consuming to say the least. As a powerful dedication to the Irish-born, Brighton based artist’s grandmother, lyrics like”her wisdom always fills the air” resonate with undying passion and pain.
The track’s introduction lulls you whimsically into a false sense of melodic security with May’s angel like trills until the listener is interrupted with tribal drums and an explosive chorus. The volcanic climax at 2:38 is like no other yet soon smoothly rolls into an exit much like the entrance: calm and beguiling. Leaving you thinking ‘where the hell did that come from?’
