Days after releasing their debut record, Brooklyn indie stars, Lucius, filled the KDHX studio with catchy riffs and deep harmonies.

Although most of the melodies on the band's debut record, "Wildewomen" were written on a 92-year-old Steinway piano, do not be tricked into describing their tone as retro. The Brooklyn trio takes a fresh approach to indie music, fusing old school technical elements with a unique flair.  The end result is a genre fusing, mind blowing, original sound.

"Wildewomen" incorporates simple guitar and synth melodies with beautiful vocal harmonization, but the sound is far greater than the sum of its parts and the group creates vast soundscapes that trap the listener in overwhelming beauty.  Despite this, they never seem to fall into the trap of taking things too seriously and the feel remains remarkably lighthearted and whimsical.

In this intimate setting, all of the soulful riffs and deep harmonies become even more pronounced.  The group leads things off with "Turn It Around," a concise and playful track about losing control.  They followed with the minimalist "Go Home," which leaves the listener entranced in improvised slide guitar and haunting vocals.  To close the set, the group ran through "How Loud Your Heart Gets," a genre-spanning track that shows off their full range of tones.
