LUCIE BARAT – To Release New Single ‘Take Me Away’

Lucie BaratFollowing the release of acclaimed debut single ‘Be Uprising’ earlier this year, punk poet and singer Lucie Barât swiftly returns with new single Take Me Away. A guitar-driven composition with passionate vocals and direct lyricism, the track is a lament on the morning after a night of debauchery. The frenetic music video features Irish actress Fiona O’Shaughnessy of the British drama series Utopia.

On the video-making process (to be released in November) Barât explains “I’m old friends with Fiona and we’re working on a few film/TV projects together – so, we thought it would be fun to have her in the video. She’s the ‘good’ me – or person I want to be. The video is mainly about being trapped in a cycle of excess. Fiona comes out of the sea to save me from myself. So, at the end, I walk into the same spot from which she emerged. I guess it’s a kind of rebirth, being immersed and cleansed by the sea! That and the fact it was really fun to film.”

Take Me Away will be released via Sheffield-based indie label Alya Records on 13th October.
