Lucius, Great Wilderness

When: Wed., Oct. 9, 9 p.m. 2013


Haim might have just cornered the market on insanely catchy, female-vocal-driven, arena-sized, sing-along pop, but Brooklyn band Lucius is poised to give them a run for their money. Lead singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig have a preternatural talent for harmonizing—although many of the most powerful moments on Wildewoman, Lucius' debut album (out October 15) come when the two sing in full-throated unison. Rounded out by multi-instrumentalists Dan Molad, Peter Lalish, and Andrew Burri, Lucius is already a mind-bogglingly good band, able to connect the dots from sparse, back-porch laments like "Go Home" to the pep-rally gem "Turn It Around." This is that magic moment when you can still see Lucius playing small rooms like Bunk Bar—trust me, it won't last. NED LANNAMANN
