Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, the dual frontwomen of Brooklyn's alt-poppy, girl-groupy band Lucius, aren't sisters but there's an almost spooky sororal bond between the two friends. When they join their voices together -- usually in tandem, singing the same notes as opposed to in harmony -- it can be somewhat disconcerting. It's hard to tell where one voice leaves and another begins. “We sound really different when we sing alone, but then when we sing together, it’s like a different voice,” Laessig says. The pair and their backing band -- including Danny Molad and Peter Lalish of Elizabeth & The Catapault -- have generated some serious press with a self-titled debut EP, a series of highly-plugged live showcases, and now their debut album Wildewoman (Mom + Pop). The music is a nostalgic throwback to the classic Spectorian wall-of-sound pop production but there's also a fresh and frisky attitude at play here: Wolfe and Laessig clearly aren't afraid to mix things up (in every sense).
