Endless Daze Festival Interviews: Our five questions with Lucy Kruger
Lucy Kruger is a dream pop and psychedelic folk master artist who is flying the South African flag high in Europe. Signed to UK based independent label, Fuzz Club, as part of innovative noise pop duo Medicine Boy, Lucy’s name holds weight and her artistic range allows her to wear many musical hats.
We caught up with Lucy Kruger ahead of her performance with her band at the Endless Daze Festival happening next weekend. Check our conversation with her below.
Describe what you do and your artistry in five words.
I keep company with quietness.
What is the one thing, lesson or experience do you want people to get from your music?
There is no lesson. I want to be the hand that turns over the snow globe of strange feelings.
What is the one thing you love about performing for South Africans?
I guess it’s always meaningful to play at home where there is some sort of shared history. Many of my favourite artists are from different parts of the world and so a lot of the cultural references do not ring true and I am somehow excluded. To hear someone who has grown up inhabiting the same spaces/places as you share musical/artistic intimacies is particularly special – even when the themes explored are very universal. Well, that is my experience. I guess I like the feeling that I could offer something of the same.
You are performing at the Endless Daze Festival. What can we expect from your performance?
It will be the first time I’ve played with the Lost Boys in a while. They are my very best friends. So there will be a lot of excitement. And love. And although I write music that is rather intimate, I think the Lost Boys really come alive when there is also space to get loud. I don’t suppose there will be much stage diving, but I hope it will be engaging in other ways.
Where can people follow and support you online?
My music is on all the usual platforms – Spotify, Apple, Bandcamp and Deezer. To hear about shows and releases you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram.
