Luchi is offering his new single, You’ll Hurt More, a track with a lot of soul and plenty of emotion. This Scottish singer and songwriter has been conquering listeners everywhere since he began his artistic journey in 2017.
Luchi has had 12 singles so far, and hit the top 10 on iTunes on the singer-songwriter charts. This number is certain to grow further with time as the singer continues to deliver even more music and grow his skills. This fresh release is a great point to start and get to know Luchi’s amazing music.
This single dropped on the 7th of August, 2023. It quickly became a hit with audiences thanks to the somewhat gentle emotional tone and a fun musical experience. It begins with a quiet piano that weaves a soft throughline that remains with the listener during their experience. The piano enhances the chords and dances around, drawing the audience in closer and closer. The softer tone rises to an arpeggio and provides the perfect backdrop for the striking vocals.
Beyond the piano, Luchi knows well how to make the most out of each instrument he features. The bass and the guitars come together to build up an anthem-like quality that complements the powerful vocals of the artist.
The track can be easily described as heartfelt, emotional, and deeply full of passion. It can resonate with any listener thanks to the melody and the vocals, but also thanks to the story it tells, a tale of heartbreak and a breakup that ends in a positive, confident message to take away.
Luchi builds a soulful sound that is masterfully combined with upbeat pop. It’s fun and a bit sassy but not shallow. Instead, it is complex in both the sound and the story it tells. It has many layers that offer a bit of vulnerability and a lot of fun, an anthem that mourns the loss of a relationship and celebrates one being oneself. Luchi drew inspiration from a real relationship he had with a person he describes as toxic, considering the heartbreak and the liberation. The artist found himself moving on and saw that toxic person try to return. This is the complex experience the song is trying to capture.
This is an empowering anthem for people who are going through heartbreak or considering breaking up with someone who is not good for them. It’s a reminder that it will all be OK in the end and that people will be happy again without that person.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Luchi. Here are the excerpts from the interview.
Hi, Great to have you with us today! Please share with our readers about yourself.
Hiya, I’m a singer-songwriter originally from Glasgow, Scotland. I’ve been releasing music since 2017, and in those 6 years, I’ve been lucky enough to have 12 of my singles hit the top 10 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter Charts, travel the world attending various writing camps from Nashville to Spain to Santorini, I was selected to take part in the inaugural year of Stargate’s music mentorship in LA, been mentored by some of the best songwriters in the industry and I’d say that’s not bad for a guy who dropped out of school at 16 (well a few days before my 17th birthday.)
Please tell us about your single, “You’ll Hurt More.”
The day I wrote this song, I got a message from my ex, years after we had split up, wanting to meet up for a coffee and a chat. I am a firm believer in not going backwards when it comes to relationships because there was a reason it didn’t work out in the first place, so instead of replying to him, I wrote this song. It’s everything that I would have wanted to hear all those years ago. When you go through a breakup, it can often be the case that one person struggles more than the other, and if you’re anything like I used to be, you sit at home crying, stalking their social media, then getting angry with seeing them out, living their “best life” or how fast they move on so this was my way of addressing that. It can become a game that no one knows they are playing, of “who won the break up.”
When I wrote the song last year, it started out with just a vocal and guitar, but I could hear it being a big pop anthem in my head. I felt that this song was a really empowering breakup anthem, and I wanted to reflect that in the production. So me and my producer Chris Stagg got to work, and I love that it’s quite different to the other stuff I have released recently in terms of its sound, and it has a bit of sass in it. There’s still vulnerability in it, like all my songs have, but it’s one to listen to with the windows of the car down, up full blast, and singing at the top of your lungs.
Which artists have inspired you and your musical style?
I accredit my musical style to artists like P!nk, Kelly Clarkson, Adele, Sam Smith, Callum Scott…any artist that follows the beat of their own drum has inspired me. I grew up on the radio as my family weren’t big into music, so a lot of pop really influenced me, like Spice Girls, Steps, S Club 7, Girls Aloud. I think I learnt a lot by listening to popular music and the charts, which has helped me to be able to write in a commercially satisfying way. I’m also a massive country music fan, so I draw inspiration from that genre on the storytelling side of my lyrics.
Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
I’d say it might sound cliche but make sure that whoever is around you, they all have the same goals and vision for you. It’s so easy to be taken advantage of, so always make sure that you vibe with the people on your team. If your gut is telling you no, it’s usually right, so trust yourself, and you’ll find the right people who believe in you.
What’s next for you as an artist?
There will be a few different versions of this song coming in the next few weeks which is something I haven’t done before, so that’s exciting for me. Keep an eye on my socials for that news. I already have the next single ready, which is back to the ballads, my forte. The song has a really powerful message, so I can’t wait for everyone to hear it, and hopefully, you’ll have me back to discuss that when it’s out. I’m off to LA in a few weeks to write, so hopefully, some good things will come out of that trip. There are some things in the pipeline that I don’t want to jinx by talking about, but fingers crossed, you’ll be seeing a lot more of me coming up. I’ve also been in the studio recently working on new songs, which sound great and are a bit of a different, more edgy pop sound to my previous releases, so there’s a lot more music to come from me.
Thank you so much for giving us your precious time! We wish you all the best for your journey ahead!
