Track Review: Reaping What You Sow // Lucrezia

Inspired by the likes of Rihanna, Nao, Sabrina Claudio and Ariana Grande, UK-based Lucrezia has a powerful female foundation with interwoven R&B sounds. Born in Italy, the singer melds breathy vocals with engaging melodies to ensnare your senses. Slowly gaining an international following, Lucrezia has been featured on The Other Side Reviews, Less Than 1000 Followers, Pop Fad Blog, YMX, Sinusoidal Music and many other blogs. The latest addition to her critically acclaimed discography is the single ‘Reaping What You Sow’.

Following the contemporary pop single ‘My Way’, Lucrezia adopts a softer, more soothing and flowing style in ‘Reaping What You Sow’. While this songstress certainly has a distinctive sound to her vocals, there are some similarities to Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato with the powerful sweetness of her voice. Beautifully layered, her charming tones are prominent captivating you with the intensity of the vocals; however, it is not her voice that holds all of the infectious charms. Incorporating classic piano solos with Eastern influences, ‘Reaping What You Sow’ is a fusion of various influences within a unified song.

Touching on the “…process of dealing with post-breakup hopelessness and sorrow”, ‘Reaping What You Sow’ has a melancholic sensation in its melody. The classical piano solo enhances the despair being felt in a rather elegant way with flamenco-style guitar emphasising the pain behind the words. It’s odd how a warm sound like flamenco can represent something intensely sad; I suppose it’s the heart of the emotion in sonic form.

What I find intriguing about Lucrezia is her merging of different cultures in her songs. Bi-lingual, we can hear Italian and English lyrics coming executed in her tender vocals. Lucrezia really shines in ‘Reaping What You Sow’ bring sadness, loss, confusion and overall desperation to the sentimental song.

Along with her single, Lucrezia has also released an official music video for ‘Reaping What You Sow’ that can be viewed below. Please note: this video uses strobe-like lighting effects and can trigger seizures in people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.
