Seven Lions Tickets Exchange LA Fri. June 27th 2014!

In the mood for a trippy track?  Check out Seven Lions’ newest song, Lucy.  Seven Lions decided to take a different approach to his latest release; rather than his usual melodic dance style, the famous Santa Barbara producer has created a unique psychedelic song referring to the drug LSD.  This new track takes more of a hypnotic approach, featuring many weird dark sounds, yet still including the traditional big room style.  Personally, I love how Seven Lions releases a pleasantly unexpected track with a completely new sound.  Many people find this song to be controversial and feel that Seven Lions has gone in the wrong direction.  While his unloyal fans may think so, I disagree and am very impressed that a producer can be so talented to have a specific style, yet still be able to experiment in other areas of the EDM world.  Here is what Jeff Montalvo himself has to say about the release:

“I figure I should do an explanation of this track since it seems to be the most controversial song I’ve ever put out (even more so then Serpent of Old… wow) Anyways. It all started one night when I was playing a bottle service club at an undisclosed location. Needless to say it was a fucking nightmare, not a single person in that room knew my music or wanted to hear anything remotely melodic. Me, being somewhat of a snarky asshole, decided to play all that psy trance I’ve been saving up for Burning Man just to weird them all out. It was a strange night for sure. But I had fun. Anyways. We had a long flight home the next day so I decided to grab some quotes about LSD from old movies and see if I could make a psy/bigroom combo track during the 6hr flight home. Lucy was born. So for everyone out there saying “RIP Seven Lions”… Suck my balls, you are the kind of people who make this feel like a job and not something I am doing for fun. For everyone else who has heard this song live on big ass speakers, I hope it did its job and weird-ed you out just a little bit :)” – Jeff Montalvo
