Sundance Film: Band Aid
Lucius is a triple-threat of “especially gorgeous” vocal harmonies (The New York Times), infectious hooks, and dance-inducing percussion. Pair those traits with the band’s energetic live show and it’s easy to see why Rolling Stone proclaims Lucius is “powerful enough to knock you over.”
Among one of NPR’s “favorite bands” Lucius is co-fronted by charismatic and identically-clad lead vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig who sing in unison uniquely delivering songs with stories told from the same perspective. The girls are accompanied by multi-instrumentalists Peter Lalish and Dan Molad.
In March, the band released their second studio album, Good Grief, to widespread critical acclaim, about which Pitchfork declared “evoking…sparkling,” while The Guardian called it “wonderful.” Good Grief is Lucius’ follow-up to their 2013 debut, Wildewoman.
Wolfe and Laessig met in 2005 while attending Berklee College of Music. Since forming, Lucius has toured extensively, playing headline shows and major festivals including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Newport Folk Festival. The band has collaborated with the likes of Jeff Tweedy, David Byrne and Roger Waters and have toured with The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Jack White and more.
