Brooklyn Indie-Pop Group Lucius Release Eerie "Tempest" Video

Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, the two lead singers of Brooklyn indie-pop group Lucius, have cultivated a unique fashion sense, always wearing the same clothes, haircut and deadpan demeanor. For the group's latest video "Tempest," this symmetry is on creepy, striking display, as the duo bond in a forest and get bound to chairs in the Scott Cudmore-directed clip.

“The video’s perspective is from the dreamer’s desk,” Wolfe and Laessig told Wall Street Journal. “We were drawn to the theme of duality, since it plays so prominently within our own band. But as carefully crafted as that duality seems, it was really a happy accident. It just happened by chance and it worked.”

The song is taken from the group's recently released debut LP Wildewoman, which should, if there is justice in the world, end up on numerous critics' Top 10 lists. The group will be spending most of the next three months on the road. Check out their full tour schedule and watch "Tempest" above.
