2013 may well be a very big year for Brooklyn-based band Lucius — they’ll be embarking on a lengthy summer tour which will have them playing at the Bonaroo Festival, and other places. Their 60s girl group inspired harmonies and upbeat songs have gotten quite a bit of love here, as well as the New York Times, Spin Magazine, and Rolling Stone.
A demo version of their forthcoming debut full-length album track,”Until We Get There,” recently appeared on the hit FOX show New Girl, and the fans of the show and the band uploading the song on YouTube where it became something of a viral hit — in about a week the video has seen some 45,000 hits.
As a result, the band released the demo version through iTunes as a bit of a teaser for the new album. The track offers a slight chance of pace for the band — although you hear the pretty harmonies between the two lead vocalists and the band, the track is an atmospheric and moody track that could easily be a love song, describing desperately urgent love in a devastatingly plaintive fashion; but it can also easily be a song that describes the lingering ache of a long-term relationship’s end.
