Scottish singer and model Lucia Fairfull and her band The Best Boys are set to celebrate the release of their debut album - in the magnificent setting of Dundonald Castle.

The recording - aptly titled Burning Castles - is described as a synth-laden soundscape spanning dark themes and difficult emotions.

Alexander McQueen model Lucia and her band will perform the special gig on October 19, from 7.30-8.30pm.

The Glasgow band have also released a new single, Care - a song Lucia was writing for a friend amidst a toxic relationship.

Brought to fruition on a long drive to the Isle of Skye, Lucia realised she was also writing the song for herself.

She said: “I feel like there was a lot of naivety when I was younger and I didn’t realise how toxic one of my relationships actually was until I started reflecting on it.

"I started thinking about this particular time a lot whilst writing care and really started to embody these emotions all over again and although that was quite a strange thing to experience. I think writing it gave me a lot of closure.”

Born out of Glasgow’s underground punk scene, Lucia & the Best Boys’ debut EPs Cheap Talk, Eternity and the State of Things saw her quickly garner praise from the likes of NME, DIY and Clash, with multiple plays on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 6, plus UK tours with Dream Wife and Wolf Alice. 

Lucia also has an impressive fashion and modelling background, having worked with everyone from Alexander McQueen and Valentino to Charles Jeffery.

For Lucia, this has only fuelled the band’s creative, experimental and hands-on spirit, with the two worlds frequently colliding.

“I’ve realised that taking everything I love and genuinely care about and combining it into the world of the album is what’s going to make it the most unique and honest,” she said.
