Video: Lucius – “Tempest”


The Brooklyn band Lucius unveiled their thought-provoking new video for the song “Tempest” via The Wall Street Journal“Tempest” is from the band’s recently released debut album Wildewoman, out now on Mom+Pop Records.

The new video, made by Leblanc + Cudmore, “is from the perspective of the dreamer’s desk,” co-founders and front-women Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig explain to The Wall Street Journal.  “We were drawn to the theme of duality, since it plays so prominently within our own band,” they said. “But as carefully crafted as that duality seems, it was really a happy accident. It just happened ‘by chance’ and it worked . . . our band can feel dreamlike at times, and bold with intensity at others. The video lends itself to a similar path.”

The band is currently in Europe on a tour that culminates with a sold out show in London and ends 2014 with a string of shows in the Northeast, including two sold out shows at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom. Lucius begins the new year with a Winter 2014 tour making stops in Nashville, New Orleans, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, Portland, Denver and more.
