When You Found Me


Artist: Lucero
Label: Thirty Tigers
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 29 January 2021

Lucero's latest LP, When You Found Me, is released via Thirty Tigers. Since forming in the ‘90s, this group of Memphis road-dogs has mixed heartfelt lyrics with the sounds of early rock and roll, classic punk, country-folk, and deep-fried Southern soul...

Lucero have their own unique sound which sets them apart from other bands. There's a little country-folk mixed in with rock music. The end result is more satisfying than you might think.

When You Found Me is their tenth studio album, so you know they're doing something right. The beauty of it is that it's pretty much a timeless collection of tracks with quite a bit of diversity between songs. There's a bizarre nostalgic sound which reminded my of listing to bands of the '80s - Like Boston's Third Stage era. But somehow Lucero has captured that feel and presented it as a modern interpretation of that classic sound.

The album consists of 10 songs (44 min, 59 sec).
