Lucky is a NYC downtempo rocktronica band with a revolutionary deep pop sound. It's like if Bowie was a chick and Pink Floyd was just one guy and they get it on in a dark alley to some Portishead while Zeppelin blasts from a van that keeps cruising by. Super sexy rock made for feeling.

Biography

LUCKY was conceived by MYNDY K & I. MALCOLM FRANCIS. MALCOLM is Canadian, born on a skateboard & raised on punk rock. He toured Canada & the U.S.A. playing bass for a band called Skin Barn opening for Urge Overkill, Green Day & Nirvana. In ‘93 he moved to the Big Apple lookin’ for trouble & started his own prod. Co., Popular Beat Combo, making beats for MTV & VH1 and re-mixing tracks for artist like Etta James & Donna Summer. MYNDY K grew up on a musical goat farm in Vermont. Shortly after moving to NYC she signed a record deal with Strictly Rhythm Records (’96-’99) during which time she worked with the Berman Bro.’s, Johnny Vicious, Eddie Baez, Hani & DezroK to name a few. With 5 dance singles under her belt, including her #14 Billboard dance hit “MOMENTS”, Myndy K had a reputation on the underground music scene as one of the fiercest performers in the NYC underworld. In ‘99 she sang back up for Dido on her first U.S. tour and it was then that she realized it was time to create her own band. After meeting each other in ’00, MALCOLM & MYNDY were completely swept into the force they now call LUCKY. They got together to work on one song and resurfaced 23 songs later knowing that what they’d been waiting for their whole lives was now upon them. LUCKY, the band, is Myndy K on vocals, I. Malcolm Francis on bass, Rob Bose on keyboards & special effects & Genji Siraisi (Groove Collective) on drums. They’ve been captivating NYC audiences with their live show since ‘01 and recently released their first album, “Stories By The Fire’s Side” on their own label, Spyralhead Lady (cdbaby.com). Their sound is electronic meets acoustic, dark meets light, Blondie meets Patsy, a serpent with wings……Feelin’ LUCKY?

“Wow, music you can f**k to.”
Aaron King, Freelance Television Producer

“teasingly diverse”
Steve, bass player & doorman @ FILTER 14 NYC

“Sexy...Melodic...Captivating....LUCKY”
Sarah Ivory, CONNOISSEUR/East Coast A&R

“...like a four leaf clover for your ears”
Bill Coleman, PEACE BISQUIT/President

“Music for the morning after a Satanic Ritual”
Acey Slade, guitar player for the MURDER DOLLS

"Stories by the Fire's Side", featuring the chimerical vocals of Myndy K and the dark rhythms of I. Malcolm Francis, Rob Bose and Glen Alger Schricker, paints a picture of plush lounge as a phantasmagoric funhouse. From the mischievous opening "We Are Children" to the hypnotic remake of "Wish You Were Here" and the hilarious acoustic monologue in "Stories By The Fire's Side", this CD is dark, deft and dreamlike.
Edmund O’Reilly, LIVE 365 “Afterhours Café”

“The best indie release in years. Production is very strong, love all arrangements and a combination of live bass appearing on a top of sampled sounds. Great electronica record with a lot of pop intention.”
Igor Kisil, NOSTALGIC RECORDS / A&R

“God broke the mold when he made Myndy K, and so it without much surprise that Lucky rocks. I liked their songs the very first time I heard them and I like them even more when I listen to them now. Their live show is positively electric.”
Lizzie Simon, Author of “DETOUR”/NY Times bestseller

Lyrics

Queen Of The Sun

Written By: Lucky

Hold my hand it’s late
Don’t you think it’s getting cold outside
Don’t you wanna take a break from all the pain I’ve caused inside
And we’ve always had big plans
Once or twice we tried to steal a car
And if I had a gun right now I swear to God we’d be dead by now

‘Cause she believes in waves,
She believes in waves,
She believes in waves,
That she’s the queen of the sun, She’s the queen of the sun,
She’s the queen of the....sun

She doesn’t need anything
From anywhere she’s ever been before
And when she’s lost she knows she’s very close to home
And she’s always had big plans
Somehow they got lost inside the wall
But when she prays she knows
that she can always search to find some more

‘Cause she believes in waves,
She believes in waves,
She believes in waves,
That she’s the queen of the sun, She’s the queen of the sun,
She’s the queen of the....sun

She believes in waves,
She believes in waves,
She believes in waves,
She believes in waves.....

‘Cause she believes in waves,
She believes in waves,
She believes in waves,
That she’s the queen of the sun, She’s the queen of the sun,
She’s the queen of the....sun

‘Cause she believes in waves,
She believes in waves,
She believes in waves,
That she’s the queen of the sun, She’s the queen of the sun,
She’s the queen of the....sun

The Whole Night

Written By: M. Kinzie, I. Malcolm Francis & W. Weichert

I want to make u tingle
Up and down your spine
Think you’re seein’ sparkles
They’re not yours they’re mine
I said I gotta secret
See it in my eyes
You’ll feel it in my fingers
Feels like summer time

Come take me to the ocean
Cover me with your love
All I want is to show you...
I’m beggin on my,
beggin on my bated knee now

Please, please, please
Won’t you spend the whole night with me now
Please, please, please
Beggin on my hands and knees now

Swimmin’ in the river
Feelin’ so devine
The sun is painting pictures
I'm comin’ back to life
I feel a little tingle
Up and down my spine
Your standing right beside me
And that’s the reason why
That’s the reason why

Colors fly around me
So sweet and comforting
I feel love all around me
Won’t you spend the whole night with me now

Please, please, please
Won’t you spend the whole night with me now
Please, please, please
Beggin’ on my hands and knees now
Please, please, please
Won’t you spend the whole night with me now
Please, please, please
Beggin’ on my hands and knees now

wanna b a superstar
wanna have a house on sunset
You’ll only c me from afar
