Lucy In Blue has a unique take on early psychedelic prog rock

LUCY IN BLUE are one of the rising stars of the Progressive music scene, veering effortlessly into Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Camel territory. Showcasing a deep love for psychedelic soundscapes and the progressive songwriting of the 1970s, their sound is steeped in a modern sensibility as well.

Lucy In Blue has a unique take on early psychedelic prog rock

The Icelandic rock/metal scene has been thriving the past years, but we haven’t seen too many psychedelic and progressive rock bands yet. So, let us introduce Lucy In Blue, a young quartet who really has made a great northern sounding blend inspired by the early work of Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Camel and the great psychedelic and progressive masters of the late 60’s/early 70’s.

The band’s young lineup of Arnaldur Ingi Jónsson on Keyboards and vocals, Kolbeinn Þórsson on Drums, Matthías Hlífar Mogensen on Bass and vocals, and Steinþór Bjarni Gíslason on Guitar and vocals have been stunning crowds with their soaring guitar solos and intense build-ups that take the listener for a ride through the psychedelic soundscapes and the progressive song writing styles of the 1970’s.

The band released their sophomore full-length album “In Flight” on April 12th 2019, to coincide with the band’s appearance at the iconic Roadburn Festival in Tilburg. Lucy in Blue has toured as support for SLEEP.

“The first thing that struck me as I listened to In Flight was the resemblance to early ‘70s Pink Floyd. That band has certainly been a major influence here and these guys pull it off with flying colours. In Flight is a very impressive sophomore effort of early ‘70s influenced psychedelic progressive rock. I highly recommend it to anyone who fancies the genre.”
