Across the country glimmers of spring sunshine are beginning to
flicker through windows. Lucius
Laced in this glowing light is the feeling of optimism and joy, something that Lucius’ debut album tries to embody.
Although it is far from pioneering stuff, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig’s patchwork quilt of soulful ’60s, indie pop and country rock songs has been
weaved using a new pattern.
The real appeal is the duo’s dazzling voices that interlink on the album-titled opener and become one big tour de force for the remainder,
as infectious harmony after infectious harmony follows.
Aside from a glistening vocal performance that would see Tom Jones reaching for his buzzer faster than his fake tan,
the instrumentation pristinely waltzes along inoffensively and a little boringly, and yet it is the gentler
meandering moments that are much more enjoyable than the stomping
and irritating likes of ‘Turn It Around’, ‘Nothing Ordinary’ and ‘Hey,
Unfortunately, more often than not, ‘Wildewoman’’s flawless singing isn’t enough to conjure warm rays of jubilation by themselves.
If it wasn’t for this team of experts Lizzo never would have had time to
record the two new tracks that have been added to the re-release of
‘Lizzobangers’ – ‘Love in Maine’ and ‘Paris’.
The latter – a gritty number with a raw beat – has been released as
a single and aired on an episode of hit HBO series Girls in February.
It was an exciting moment for Lizzo, who celebrated with an 18-hour Girls
marathon with Sophia.
“I fell in love with the show all over again,” she gushes.
“I remember the first time I watched it, I was like, ‘oh my God’.
Everyone is relatable and all of your girlfriends act like at least one of them.
So real!” While we’re on the topic, I can’t resist another game of ‘Fuck, Marry, Kill’… “Uh oh!” Cries Lizzo before erupting with laughter.
“Well, you’ve gotta kill Marnie, God bless her.
I would marry Jessa, although I saw what happens when Jessa gets married – she just left.
But I’m not that guy and we’d have a lot of fun because we’d travel a lot and not do drugs.
Then I would definitely have sex with Hannah, because she obviously gets down.”
