Lucius – “Tempest”

Lucius_Wildewoman_album_coverThe two front women of band Lucius (Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig) have the same exact hairstyle. If that isn’t true friendship, I honestly don’t know what is. In fact, they look so much alike it seems as if they are mirror images when they sing and sway. They met at Berklee and started singing until they met the other members of the band. Aside from their killer group dynamic, they have calming, ethereal voices that are often mixed with luminous guitar melodies courtesy of Peter Lalish and Andrew Burri, and thumping drum beats effortlessly done by Dan Molad. As for their musical style, it sounds to me as if it were the brainchild of sixties bands The Mamas and The Papas and The Supremes. Although their sound may seem like it’s a venture into the past, it works for this century. The complex beats and lyrics both bring it back into today, and it shows the world that girl-powered bands are still very much alive.”Tempest” is from Lucius’s debut album, Wildewoman.
