Reviews

"... The night (at The Zoo, 7 December) was opened by local musician Beth Lucas, an indie muso with a powerhouse voice and a knack for emotionally, compelling lyrical narrative. For an hour, Beth took the audience on an exploration of life, love and everything in between - and let’s be honest, that’s an incredibly difficult task when the audience is waiting for another act to start (and, in this case, when a glitch meant many of us were told to arrive an hour earlier than necessary to stand in line). That she managed it is testament to her talent."

"Ninety minutes earlier, it was local girl Beth Lucas whose sparse acoustic pop/ punk arrangements hit exactly the right emotional note with the crowd. Her wounded, plaintive tone was often only accompanied by a single acoustic guitar, and the contrast between the laconic, easy strums and her wounded, plaintive tone was stark. Lucas is not far off delivering her debut studio EP, and the sort of confidence that breeds helped her cocksure yet vulnerable delivery. Time and time again I’m drawn to the emotional clarity of her lyrics; difficult subject matter delivered with a wide-eyed self-awareness."

"Opening the farewell tour is local strummer Beth Lucas, and her raw acoustic sounds provide the most emotive of introductions. Versed in confessional verses, she shares with us stories, feelings, hopes and fears — concurrently pulling at her guitar strings and our hearts. Bar-side chatter occasionally becomes too audible, taking away from Lucas' undeniable talents, but although we stare daggers to our rear she doesn't even flinch. Striking stuff."

"Beth’s short but sweet set showcases her incredible talents as both a vocalist and lyricist, her acoustic stylings combined with an emo/punk edge fit the bill better than a pair of spray on pants (is it too early in the review for Kisschasy puns?). With an incredible year that included recording her EP Violence, opening for State Champs shortly after their 5SOS tour, and taking a slot at Tape Deck Fest ’15, Kisschasy was the cherry on top for her, as she tells the crowd the story of sending them a demo recording ten years ago. With a cover of Neck Deep‘s A Part of Me, and a string of originals, Lucas made many new fans that night!”
