“Boxes” is the immediately resounding debut single from Boston singer-songwriter Theresa Lucia. And it is all too effective at pulling you into a state of hypnotic catharsis.
It serves as the perfect introduction to the up and coming artist’s timeless yet distinctively nuanced approach to Alt Folk. The acoustic instrumentals weave light absolving melodies which sit tightly against Theresa Lucia’s vocals – no matter how they soar.
When artists have the ability to create such organically sentimental tracks, they needn’t rely on gimmicks or novelty. So, while plenty of artists are trying to stand out for their innovation, Theresa Lucia has gone right back to the roots of Folk by using her discernible talent to convey connectable stories and emotion.
