Lucius, Feb. 13, Neurolux
The New York Times, NPR, Paste, Rolling Stone, Spin, Time and more have waxed positively about female-fronted, Brooklyn-based pop quintet Lucius. Touring behind its debut, Wildewoman (Mom & Pop Music, October 2013), Lucius has been blowing across the United States this winter like a warm summer storm and will soon cross the ocean to support the March release of Wildewoman worldwide. The band is often described as having a '60s girl-group sensibility, possibly due to some of the tightest vocals and instrumentation to hit the airwaves in a long time. Singers Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe also dress identically when they perform; but, rather than come across as a novelty, it serves to further bind the two, who sing almost uncannily as one voice. Watch Lucius' entry in the popular NPR Tiny Desk Concert series and see why you don't want to miss this show.
