Most recently, Lucius scored Zoe Lister-Jones’ film Band Aid, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival. The news debuted on Paste, who calls Lucius, “One of our favorite bands.” Of the film, Lister-Jones’ says, “Band Aid is a film about a home, and what it takes to cultivate that sacred and often fragile space. It’s a film about art, and love, and rock and roll. And how we find light amidst the dark.”
Lucius is led by its co-founders and vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig accompanied by multi-instrumentalists Peter Lalish and Dan Molad.
