Nadia Kamrath is a young songwriter based in the United States with a talent for writing soft and vulnerable indie-pop songs that are filled with dreamy hooks and melodies. Songwriting has long been her favorite way to creatively interact with the world, and since childhood she has filled countless notebooks with her lyrics and song ideas. She loves to tell stories about her life that explore love in its most fragile state.

"For Lucy" was written on her bedroom floor a year ago and is steeped in memories of old, beautiful friendships that were not able to persist against the passage of time. This elegant tale of regret and unfortunate circumstance serves as a poignant reminder that nothing is certain—as we are reminded that everything worthwhile is fleeting. Nadia presents her delicate and inviting vocal talent with a combination of wistful melancholy and aggressive introspection while "For Lucy" serves as a fitting anthem for BFFs everywhere: hold on to that fire because without it the world can feel very cold.

You lay on the floor of your new house
With the walls you painted dark blue
You talk to yourself
Never felt so alone
I call, you don't pick up the phone

He left you for another back in winter
Geminis and their ways
When you hesitated
I stopped trying
And I think about it to this day
