Lucia & The Best Boys Shares New Song ‘When You Dress Up’

She says it's a "turning point in my music..."

Glasgow dark-pop mistress Lucia & The Best Boys returns with new song ‘When You Dress Up’.

The new single is her first piece of music since 2021’s ‘The State Of Things’ EP, and finds the songwriter doubling down on her evil, twinkling charm. Mid-way between Lana del Rey and Jenny Hval, Lucia & The Best Boys seems to make pop songs for people who think Wednesday Addams is a little on the optimistic side.

New single ‘When You Dress Up’ is shrouded in post-midnight glamour, and it represents something of a turning point for the Glasgow artist. She comments…

I’ve known since the first time we played ‘When You Dress Up’ in the studio that it was the first song I wanted people to hear for this turning point in my music.

“This song resonates deeply with my values as a woman with its unapologetic, empowering energy. For me, this is an evolution from themes I have sung about in the past which underline the weight of the male gaze, and learning not to suppress our own identity for the sake of another person’s version of who we should be.

A full video is also online, created by Lucia and director Rianne White – tune in now.
