Lucius in Concert

"Luscious, luminous, lilting lullabies" is how the New York Times describes songs by Lucius, a five-piece band from Brooklyn, NY.
When they wrote their self-titled EP, Lucius was living in an old victorian house in Brooklyn’s Ditmas Park. They found the place on Craigslist, not knowing it was a recording studio and music school for 60 years prior. There were so many treasures that had been left behind – like the 100 year old Steinway piano that would nurture their writing habits. The four-story musical fortress also housed 8 other musician friends and would soon open their doors to bandmates, Danny Molad and Peter Lalish and later, Andrew Burri.
Holly and Jess have had a relationship filled with coincidences. Their lives are uniquely in sync. “When we were ready to make our record we felt it was imperative that the recording reflect that synergy. None of us were concerned with trying to sound like ‘a band’, we just wanted to create a unique environment for each song to sit in.” Much of their record is about these unique experiences, told from the same perspective, at the same time, with the same sentiment. Two voices as one.
This is a great chance to catch this emerging band in an intimate venue!
Lucius will also be performing an in-store gig at Culture Clash Records at 6pm on February 18th.
