Multi-talented artist and LGBTQ representative Lucii, FKA Lucii the Alien, releases her new single, “Narcissist,” via Create Music.
Lucii first exploded on the electronic music scene as a producer, making big waves with her contagious sound and collaborations with artists such as Adventure Club, Riot Ten, Dion Dimmer, and Champagne Drip.
She released her first EP, Wicked, in 2020 via Liquid Stranger’s WAKAAN – the first female artist on the label, followed by a series of hit singles, including “Just A Dream” and “Me and You,” amassing millions of streams on Spotify.
As a bedroom producer who writes her tracks and creates her beats at home, her music reflects genuine vulnerability. She believes there should be more lesbian and queer pop stars in the market and aims to uplift and inspire those attempting to break into the scene with her presence.
Lucii says, “I’m very into making this world a better place – and I will use my voice to do that. Women’s rights and LGBTQ rights are constantly under attack and I’m very vocal about ways to help.”
“Narcissist” sees Lucii heading in a new direction, moving into the pop genre. Hints of her roots in electronic music remain, but the addition of pop flavors imbues “Narcissist” with compelling energy.
Tattoo.com spoke with Lucii to find out more about the inspiration for “Narcissist,” her transition from EDM to pop, and her ink.
Thanks for joining us Lucii and congratulations on the new release. Can you introduce yourself to our readers who may not be familiar with you?
Thank you so much! Hi, I’m Lucii and I’m an electronic/pop artist who is currently transitioning from being a DJ to being a completely live act
So “Narcissist” is out, and we think it’s a message that everyone can relate to, to some degree. Tell us a little more about what inspired the track.
I was in therapy and was describing this person to my therapist and she said (her name is Andrea and I shout her out in the song), “well that person sounds like a Narcissist,” and I NEVER heard of that word in my life, so I started writing that night “you’re a Narcissist says my therapist” and that’s how it came about.
As you transition from electronic music to pop, where/how would you say you have grown the most as an artist?
I would say in writing music. My songwriting has just completely taken over in the past couple of years (thanks to getting my heartbroken) and I just started writing music I WANTED to make and not just going off of the hype of what I thought a crowd would like. I feel more myself than ever
As a singer, songwriter, and producer, do you feel your newest release (and upcoming tracks) sufficiently showcase your full skillset?
Yes, I do! I wrote and produced every track on the album, and I think it really shows a more mature vulnerable side of me than ever before
How do you see the Lucii project growing in the near and distant future?
I see having a full band and going on a big tour. I would love to bring a band to festivals and just showcase my vocals and music. I want to keep putting out albums as well (my second one is already done).
We love your tattoos – which is the first one you ever got?
First tattoo I ever got was in Daytona (lol). I was 16 using a fake I.D. and it says, “be humble.” Yes, this was BEFORE Kendrick dropped his hit song, but my mom always told me that and I was also not sober, sooooo yep it’s there on my side.
Is your ink simply body art, or is there an underlying significance to your ink?
I have a whole memorial sleeve to my grandparents. I was extremely close to them, and they all passed away by the time I was 16, so each piece on my arm is a symbol of them. But then I have jello with a stapler in it on my leg (from ‘The Office’). Sooo I deff have seminal and silly.
Any tattoo artists that you’d like to shout out or recommend?
YES, my amazing artist Johnny Flash (@j0hnnyflash on socials) he’s been doing ALL my tattoos since I was 18 and he is absolutely amazing, I’m very lucky to have found such a talented artist. If you’re in the Orlando, Florida area HIT HIM UP!!
Give a piece of advice to any creatives that might be reading this interview.
I would say don’t let the fear of feeling stupid hold you back; go after whatever you want. Don’t play it safe. Do what you want
Finally, give us your favorite fun fact:
Fun fact?? About me?? Ummmmm maybe that I used to try to sing like Amy Winehouse for 10 years and there are old recordings on YouTube that I HOPE no one ever finds (but Amy is a legend and I love her, also I have her tatted on my thigh).
