Lecx Stacy has announced his new album, Held My Gaze, will drop on September 15th. With the news is the second single “Took My Time”, a tender, emotional folk exploration featuring frequent collaborators and friends rei brown and sam.sts.

Held My Gaze mingles introspection with spacious emo-folk music centered around deconstructed industrial, shoegaze, indie, hardcore, country, and drum ’n’ bass elements. Resulting in a project that spans six expertly crafted tracks that serve as a cathartic culmination of years of self-healing, growth, and emotional work for Lecx as he continues to unveil a deeply personal side to his artistry. Inspired by his Filipino heritage and experience as a first-generation American, Lecx unpacks the internal anxieties of being perceived, the pressures imposed by society on an artist layered with the emotional strife that is found when close relationships dissolve via a lens that’s steeped in equal parts fantasy juxtaposed with world-building, repurposed Catholic dogma and modern symbolism.

“This is a project that explores my excessive hyper-fixations, good and bad.”

With the forthcoming EP, Lecx foregoes the sociopolitical commentary that was at the heart of last year’s debut album Bundok and delves into nostalgia as he expands on the soundscapes of his youth. Lecx Stacy remains one of our generation’s leading new voices; born to Filipino immigrant parents, Lecx is no stranger to the trials and tribulations of the immigrant experience.

A true creative, Lecx continues experimenting with his music and production, resulting in a unique left-of-center production and sound. He has become eponymous with the next wave of various indie up-and-comers like rei brown, Isabella Lovestory, Jean Dawson, Victor Internet, Binki, Dre’es, and more.
