Lucius Cover Tears For Fears, Release Special Edition ‘Genevieve’ 7″

Lucius’ powerful twin harmonies often recall the halcyon days of 60′s pop. However, the Brooklyn quartet’s latest musical offering, a cover of Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule The World,” plants them squarely in the Reagan era.

Featured as the B-side to their special edition 7″ of “Genevieve,” a powerhouse track from their debut album Wildewoman,  the band slows down the tempo, incorporating sparse instrumentation and effects along with their trademark harmonies to craft a somber take on the 80′s pop classic. The vinyl can be purchased at the band’s online store. Listen to the song HERE.

Lucius also have a few busy months of road work ahead of them, which include performances at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, as well as headlining dates of their own and shows with Sara Bareilles. View the full list of dates below.
