Lucius - Something About You

All but confirming their left hand turn into off centre, kitschy 80s pop, Lucius release the next music from their forthcoming second album. Due on 11th March, Good Grief marks the end of a three year wait for the follow-up to their semi-folky, harmony driven debut Wildewoman.

In the band’s own words, ‘Blame it on mercury retrograde, or whatever it is, it dawned on us that many of our friends and loved ones were experiencing some rough times. ‘Something About You’ was an attempt to brighten their spirits, and even our own, especially given the darker nature of many of the other songs we knew would be included on the record.’

The sixties kaleidoscope-influenced video that accompanies the release was directed by Mimi Cave from LA whose work has premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival and The San Francisco International Film Festival, amongst many others.

Lucius say of the video, “After arranging “Something About You” in the studio with the band, what started off as a nod to the sunnier side of the street ended up taking a darker harmonic turn, adding a certain ambiguity and depth to the overall message, which we then tried to capture visually with our director and friend, Mimi Cave who we’ve worked with in the past on the video for “Turn It Around’. The underlying theme of the video is that not everything is what it appears at first glance.”
