Karisma Records have inked a deal with LUCY IN BLUE, one of the rising stars of the Icelandic Progressive music scene and are set to release the band’s sophomore full-length album “In Flight” on April 12th 2019, to coincide with the band’s appearance at the iconic Roadburn Festival in Tilburg.
Formed in 2013, LUCY IN BLUE released their self-titled debut album via Bandcamp in 2016, and, since then, 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 in their native Iceland 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.
Of their signing to Karisma Records, LUCY IN BLUE had this to say:
For 5 years we have been expressing ourselves through the sounds we make together. It feels great to now be able to share those sounds with more people outside our little island. We are very much looking forward to bringing more of our music into the world the help of Karisma Records.
Certainly their arrival at Karisma Records, gives LUCY IN BLUE the chance to bring their music to a much larger audience. Young though they may be, the band’s elaborate grooves and delicate chord movements are played with unique musicianship. Combined with ethereal harmonies and philosophical lyrics that deal not only with the whole spectrum of human emotion, but also touch on more political themes as well, LUCY IN BLUE are a band to be reckoned with.

The Roadburn Festival has this to say about the band:
Veering effortlessly into Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Camel territory, the band will stun Roadburn on Sunday, April 14. Showcasing a deep love for psychedelic soundscapes and the progressive songwriting of the 1970s, their sound is steeped in a modern sensibility as well. We expect the In Flight album launch to be something truly special for the 2019 festival.
