In 2016, Lucas Laufen took his life halfway around the world, re-locating from his quiet coastal hometown in Australia to Berlin, Germany. Since the middle of 2016 and the release of his debut EP 'Goodbye', he has played over 80 shows across Europe, building an already loyal fanbase from the ground up.
Laufen’s music is the sort that makes us stop and breathe: sombre falsetto melodies married to shimmering guitar; elemental orchestrations that yearn and plunge – the coastal poetry of the wild Australian imaginary.
“With his sensitive and at the same time confident voice, this sweet bearded man sings to us. He tackles the loss of landmarks as well as the search for memories, isolation, freedom, sadness and love with ambition, succeeding in embellishing melancholy with honest hope.” -indiemusic
