Tegan and Sara, Lucius, The Courtneys
May 19, 2014
Sandwiched on this night between the bar-band fuzz-pop of The Courtneys and the polished pop-rock of Tegan and Sara, Lucius was a stunning breath of fresh air.
It's one of the beauties of Lucius' style - you never hear an individual sing. At times sounding like a girl group ("Nothing Ordinary"), other times sounding like a '50s doo-wop revival ("Turn It Around"), Lucius' vocals give plenty of depth to the lyrics while a trio of bandmates teeters between sparse accompaniment and whirling rushes of percussion. Each of the band's five members has some kind of drum near them, providing as much thunder as needed in a given moment.
Wolfe and Laessig found plenty of time to hammer on the drums next to them, providing added bounces of energy when needed in the group's short-but-sweet seven-song set that left many in the crowd wanting more.
