Lucius

Los Angeles, CA

Lucius

Lucius is a mix of torchy folk-rock and urban indie pop performed by front-women Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig and band. At first blush, the duo makes a dramatic visual statement with twin-sister-like matching hairdos and outfits, and then quickly overtakes your senses with vibrant sibling-like tight crisp harmonies. Not sisters but roommates, they started out as a folkish acoustic duo after meeting at Boston's Berklee College of Music in 2005. They moved to Brooklyn, then L.A., where their music and look evolved, adding bandmates and poppy hooks, underpinned by synth flourishes and lush electric guitars; which in turn influenced their head-turning distinctive visual style. There have been albums and EPs and world tours leading to critical success, with Rolling Stone calling them “the best band you may not have heard yet.” Wolfe and Laessig are also in-demand as backup singers, on stage and on records, with Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), John Legend, Mavis Staples, and Roger Waters (Pink Floyd). Their most recent Lucius release is a back-to-the-roots affair called Nude, with stripped down acoustic versions from their back catalogue.
