Lucius, 'Wildewoman': Fall Music Preview 2013
Release Date: Oct. 15
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."
