Lucy In Battle Armor

JJ Speaks, Retrosphere, kristeva

All Ages


Lucy in Battle Armor formed in 2011 as an instrumental rock band and has been a staple of the Richmond indie scene for several years. The band initially gained traction as a math-rock outfit, but later settled into a more dance-able subgenre of shoegaze they came to call “groovegaze”. Lucy has performed on Richmond's premier local radio showcase “River City Limits” and has opened for several notable touring artists from a wide range of genres, including DIIV, Polyphia, and CHON. In addition to performing as LIBA, the band members also operate Lucy Lane – one of the most visited DIY venues in Richmond. Lucy live-recorded their early EPs and their forthcoming full-length at their venue in order to best capture the energy and density of their live performances.

The band is heavily influenced by late-oughts post rock, but incorporates elements of dancier indie rock and shoegaze – even hints of EDM – to bring a brightness to the melodies that genre contemporaries sometimes avoid. The band's earlier math rock tendencies do occasionally shine through as well, creating a dense instrumental tapestry that just makes you want to groove.
