Lucius
Lucius
Lucius is a triple-threat of vocal harmonies, infectious hooks, and dance-inducing percussion. Pair those traits with the band’s irresistible live show and it’s easy to see why NPR Music calls Lucius “a fabulous band playing such infectious pop songs” and Paste hails the group as “blissful.” Charismatic co-founders and lead vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig sing in unison – two voices as one – uniquely delivering songs with stories told from the same perspective. Multi-instrumentalists Andrew Burri, Peter Lalish, and Dan Molad round out the stylish, Brooklyn-based quintet. Lucius release their debut album Wildewoman, October 15 in North America on Mom+Pop.
Kingsley Flood
Kingsley Flood
In 2010, Kingsley Flood released their first full-length album, “Dust Windows” to critical acclaim and widespread fan love. In 2011, the band released a five song EP, “Colder Still” with tracks that were touted by NPR, Esquire and Paste magazines, amongst others, and solidified their reputation as a soulful, and raw rock band with a fiery and dynamic live show.

But Kingsley Flood has no plans to stand still, recording its latest full-length - its most honed, complex, and meaningful project to date - with producer Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Langhorne Slim) in an 18th century farmhouse in rural Maine. Amplifying the band's pension for dynamics, the sound blends Dylan-esque storytelling, wistful, Kinks-ian pop, and the urgency of the Clash.

The DC and Boston-based sextet contrasts old and new - jangly acoustic guitars with spikey electrics, gentle violins with rogue keyboards - while honoring hooks and melody. The fiery show earned them the title of "Boston's best live band" by the Boston Herald.
