When they wrote their self-titled EP, Lucius was living in an old Victorian house in Brooklyn’s Ditmas Park. They found the place on Craigslist, not knowing it was a recording studio and music school for 60 years prior. There were so many treasures that had been left behind – like the 100 year old Steinway piano that would nurture their writing habits. The four-story musical fortress also housed 8 other musician friends and would soon open their doors to bandmates Danny Molad and Peter Lalish. Holly and Jess have had a relationship filled with coincidences. Their lives are uniquely in sync. “When we were ready to make our record Danny and Pete felt it was imperative that the recording reflect that synergy. None of us were concerned with trying to sound like ‘a band’, we just wanted to create a unique environment for each song to sit in.”
Much of their record is about these unique experiences, told from the same perspective, at the same time, with the same sentiment. Two voices as one.Lucius has been described by the New York Times as “The next Feist” having “luscious, luminous, lilting lullabies”, by Seventeen Magazine as “alluring and magnetic” and their song “Don’t Just Sit There” was recently premiered on NPR’s All Songs Considered. Their self-titled EP, produced by Tony Berg (Phantom Planet, Aimee Mann, Beck) and Dan Molad (Elizabeth & The Catapult, Luke Temple/Here We Go Magic) is an exciting debut.
Indaba Music is thrilled to present a gorgeous video capturing an intimate moment the band experienced at the Suite268 loft on the Bowery. “Go Home” is a wonderfully built song filled with power and soul.
Indaba Music, the premier online music creation site, has launched a unique new platform for up-and-coming artists that will help them get played and, more importantly, get paid. Named after the location of the Indaba loft on the Bowery in New York City, Suite 268 is a new YouTube channel curated by Indaba that features high-quality video performances of original songs and select covers by the best artists from Indaba’s 650,000-strong community. These videos will be monetized through premium advertising, and all revenue will be split evenly between Indaba and the artist. In addition, for the first time ever, musicians will be able to make money from select cover songs on YouTube thanks to Indaba’s arrangements with publishers, who previously received 100% of the ad revenue generated by such videos. Artists can also earn additional income through Suite 268 from contest prizes, brand sponsorships, synch licensing of audio, and official releases of select tracks via online radio and iTunes.
