They look like sisters, maybe even twins, the way that Lucius co-founders Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig style themselves and dress, but like any pair, they can also be opposites - the yin to each other's yang. That duality forms the core of Good Grief, the now LA-based band's second release, which explored lives in transition and treats personal troubles with comic relief. Yet while songs like "Gone Insane" characterize one of the pair's first big blowouts, their intricately entwined vocal harmonies tell the real story of their accord. And the boys in the band also fit in seamlessly, adding instrumentation and additional harmonies for full dramatic effect. Live, Lucius is a feast for the eyes and ears, creating an on-stage spectacle of dress, dance and design. In-studio at KEXP, the five-piece doesn't hold back and gives listeners, and now viewers, the full Lucius experience. Watch their full session now.
