Lucy McWilliams Delivers Shimmering Single, “Break My Own Heart”
Singer and songwriter, Lucy McWilliams, hailing from Dublin, now in London, is only twenty-two and has a string of successful releases in the making. Beginning in 2020, she’s so far amassed over thirteen million streams on Spotify alone. Since then, Lucy has spent 2021 and the beginning of 2022 honing her sound with friend and frequent collaborator, producer: Charlie Hugall. The result so far has been two demos released in May and June this year: “The Woman in Me” and “Medication” which both tapped into Lucy’s vulnerability as a writer.
In the last few months, the Irish artist is back once again to share latest single, “Break My Own Heart.” The song offers a steady dose of warmth, compelling songwriting, and lilting vocals that all combined, capture a captivating persona of her own. Channeling the familiar insecurities we all feel within serious relationships, her light and lofty voice floats across vibrant dream-pop production, continuing her forward-thinking approach to date.
“Break My Own Heart” is about self-sabotage within a relationship; being scared of being close to someone so you intentionally push them away before they can cause heartbreak to you. It’s that fear of rejection and preparing yourself for the hurt before they can hurt you.”
~ Lucy McWilliams
