The Brooklyn-based quartet of Lucius has received quite a bit of love and praise from the blogosphere and from publications such as Rolling Stone (who had named them a “Band to Watch”), and Time for their impeccably tight harmonies, stomping rhythms and overwhelming earnest live sets. And the sort of harmonies you’ll hear on “Tempest,” the latest single off the band’s forthcoming debut Wildewoman which Mom & Pop Records will release on October 15th, are sadly quite rare these days; in fact, they sound much more likely to have been heard in the days of Phil Spector’s glorious “Wall of Sound” days. Of course, there are subtle differences – the gently swirling electronics beneath the surface that give the song a slight, chilly air that also manages to be kind of haunting.
