Amaya Laucirica – Live Performance


Amaya Laucirica is an Australian singer/songwriter whose music combines the swirling contours of Cocteau Twins with the wistful melodies of The Go-Betweens.

Since 2008, she has released four critically acclaimed albums including her 2008 debut Sugar Lights, Early Summer in 2010 (which was selected by Australia’s JJJ Radio as their “Album of the Week”), Sway in 2014, and Rituals in 2018 (featured as one of Rough Trade’s (UK) Albums of the month). Her last album was supported by a tour of the UK and Europe in 2018 including performances at The Great Escape Festival (UK) and Primavera Sound (Spain).

At the beginning of 2023, Amaya started work on recording the album with producer James Cecil at Super Melody World. The most eclectic of all her albums, the album signals a departure in style featuring orchestral arrangements, electronic beats, and hi-fi pop production. Amaya’s fifth album will be released in 2024.

… the kind of thing that conjures highway lines blurring under wheels, pink-lit tundras, glazed pupils and the Jesus and Mary Chain.
