Lucius reach new harmonic heights in "Tempest."
When acclaimed economist (that's right, economist) Paul Krugman praises a new band, specifically Brooklyn's indie-pop quintet Lucius, you gotta sit up and listen. Like, when Krugman takes even a second away from assessing the economic state of the world at large, it must be for a good reason (but I happen to know that Krugs has a little soft spot for music -- I heard your "Rock Doctors" guest spot on "Sound Opinions," Paul!).
Anyway. As long as I'm having a fangirl moment, I'll just go ahead and join Paul, Rolling Stone, and Seventeen (to name a few) in professing my love for Lucius, who sonically embody a Tegan and Sara-meets-Shawn Colvin-meets-Fleetwood Mac vibe, a sound that's especially vibrant in their irresistible new song, "Tempest."
Listen to Lucius' "Tempest" after the jump.
