EUCA, like eucalyptus is a home grown soft-rock singer/songwriter from the gold coast who has just dropped her debut single Not Champagne accompanied by a killer music video.
First and foremost a lyricist, her story-telling highlights her deep-rooted folk influences in an otherwise pop-rock parcel. Drawing upon the likes of Middle Kids, Phantastic Ferniture, Catfish & The Bottleman, Zoology and Missy Higgins, this little chick is all about the sweet-spot between heavenly melodies, brawny riffs and take-no-shit emotional integrity.
With her unique and very calming voice this laid back track about heartbreak and confusing relationships is just the tune you want to play loudly in the car as you drive away from your problems.
EUCA about the single’; “When I wrote the song I still had feelings for him, I still wanted it to have some big reunion type thing but it never came because he was just a shit dude.”
“I’m not champagne, I’m white wine, is just a metaphor for the following line – I’m flat and sour when you’re on my mind.”
“The song is about how draining it was feeling so many positive and negative things towards him all at once and how it flatted my otherwise very bubbly personality”
Not Champagne was also released alongside an amazing music video created entirely by Brisbane creatives. The video follows EUCA on a run through suburbia and progresses out into farmland, where she finds the clarity and the assurance in herself she’s been running toward.
Make sure you watch EUCA’s debut single Not Champagne below and keep an eye out for more music to come.
