Harleymoon describes the inspirations behind the track
“Lucky was the song that saved me in 2020. The first verse was written out of a low day in lockdown; quite literally peeling a parking ticket off my car, checking my bank balance and chasing overdue invoices. All work had stopped and I was talking to a friend about what she could sell on eBay if her job didn’t bring her back, we ended up laughing and picking ourselves back up, as true best friends do. Later that day I was having dinner with my family and realised how lucky I was to have relationships around me that made me smile and forget about all the madness in the world. I wanted this song to be the moments we all had in 2020 where, instead of complaining, we became truly grateful for that little thing called love.”
