Lucius are a Brooklyn indie pop group that manages to set themselves apart from the hordes of local sound-alikes through the driving combined force of lead vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig. Eschewing harmonies to mostly double barrel the melody line, this unusual option gives Lucius an undeniable energy that is lacking in most of their peers. Expect a pop-driven, interesting take on the synth-happy styles of late with enough rock to keep things on edge.
