Lucius, 'Wildewoman': Fall Music Preview 2013

Peter Larson

Release Date: Oct. 15
Label: Mom+Pop

One hallmark of 2013 in music has been the rising profile of acts with multiple strong, unified female voices like HAIM and Icona Pop. Enter Lucius, a Brooklyn indie-rock band fronted by Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe, whose joyous, melodic anthems have become favorites of tastemakers like NPR's Bob Boilen. While tracks from debut LP "Wildewom­an" are ripe for licensing, Wolfe says the group's focus is on being a live band, and that the most rewarding moments of a breakout year have been "the unexpected performances in small towns, where people are truly grateful for any music."
