Igniting a post-punk-riot explosion, The Lucky combines the intellect, sensuality, and fire-and-powder energy of Camilla Camille and Iason Mac Ai. Together they create dirty garage rock with a literary edge and a beat you can dance to.
Camille and Iason became fast friends over coffee and guitar riffs in the summer of 2011. In the heat of their collaboration, new songs took shape and old songs were reborn. Sharing vocals, they mixed a punk and riot girl recipe for rock-n-roll. They named the band The Lucky, added a drummer and began performing shows in June 2012.
The Lucky recorded with Paul Malinowski at Massive Sound Studio and released a four-song demo in February 2013. After going through a Spinal Tap-like procession of drummers, Dustin Mott joined the band with bassist Calandra Rene in July 2013. Camille, who previously played guitar, switched solely to vocals, adding her enthusiastic choreography to the live show.
Camille is sometimes sweet, like Kathleen Hannah, and other times primal, like Donita Sparks. Iason is reminiscent of Iggy Pop and Lou Reed, while his guitar solos weave a haunting melody of divine frosting.
Drawing on musical influences throughout the history of rock-n-roll as well as literary idols such as Lord Byron and Emily Dickinson, The Lucky forges a powerful post-punk-riot fusion that begs to be turned up a little louder.
