Following up the two highly praised singles dropped last year, art-pop band Lycio have shared a new haunting track called Nighfall. Channeling London Grammar-esque vibes given by the beautiful mix of brooding dark-pop textures, the song is topped by the beautiful vocal delivery of lead singer Genie Mendez.
Speaking on the track, Lycio said: “To be blunt, this is a sexy song. This song makes me feel sexy. Lyrically I don’t want to give too much away as I’d like the listener to draw their own conclusion, but the chorus line “keep your body close to heaven” in itself is fairly provocative. When I wrote the lyrics, I wrote them in a headspace of raw sexuality, I wanted there to be an air of hunger throughout. Down to the way it’s sung, the drawl of my vocal. I want this track to make people feel things and feel a certain way. Funnily enough I had two tracks in mind when writing the lyrics, Wicked Game (Chris Isaak) and Mondo Bongo (Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros), which are both equally saucy songs. So there you have it, Nightfall.”
