Singer-songwriter Sophia Bella Cucci recently released her bitter sweet single Lemons. Gentle acoustics are layered over delicate harmonies and sweeping strings. Sophia’s vocals flutter and soar and lyrics cut a sharp tang. It’s quite a simple song, but all the qualities shine through and the song like its namesake refreshes you and its taste lingers sweet and sour on your tongue.
“The idea for this song started from a conversation about lemons, and the gorgeous fruit trees that grow in the Italian countryside. From there, the idea of “having lemons” became a symbol of the more difficult parts of a relationship, whereas the Italian countryside and the idea of sharing fruit illustrate a romanticized future of what could be.”
