A gig I am most disappointed to be missing – Lucius at London’s The Lexington tomorrow night.

Their debut album, Wildewoman, is out now on Play It Again Sam and their music oscillates between soft acoustic guitar-based harmonies and wild, rhythmically energetic pop, with shoegaze-y chill-pop at the axis.

One to check out if you’re fans of Lykke Li, Tegan & Sara and possibly a little bit of Roisin Murphy.

They’re on tour at the moment, so if you, like me, miss them at The Lexington, there are another two UK chances this month in Cambridge and then at End of the Road Festival, plus some more dates in October.

Brooklyn-based indie-pop at its most infectious, the band are fronted by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig on vocals, partnered with drummer Dan Molad and guitarists Peter Lalish and Andrew Burri.

What better way to beat the mid-week hump than with a live selection from an album so complete in its A-sides that I changed and changed back the title of this blog post about 7 times.

Other options:

Lucius – Turn It Around
Lucius – Two of Us On The Run
Lucius – Genevieve

But settled on “Lucius – Nothing Ordinary”, partly because “ordinary” is something Lucius definitely are not.


Lucius – Nothing Ordinary

Very jealous of the folks going tomorrow. But I’ll make it to another one….
