Few can argue it’s always awesome when two of your favorite new acts combine forces to do a show together. After getting to interview psych synch pop band Touché earlier this year and Jess Wolfe of the retro indie pop Brooklynites Lucius back in 2012, when I heard about this show, I was pumped. Selling out the indie haven, The Echo, the venue was cozy, intimate and had a diverse age assortment of audience members ready to rock.
Touché opened the show with Alex donning her trademark cape on guitar and Bram on bass and keyboard. They performed songs off their May release, It’s Fate including my favorite, “Big Fan”, joking about a recent YouTube comment on their video about the person coming up with the concept being a “sick person”. It was good to hear songs like “I’m A Man, Not a Machine” and “Everything He Wants”.
Quintet Lucius then graced the stage with Jess and Holly wearing identical white and black dresses, reflecting their twin kindred spirit styles. After listening to their EP, I was looking forward to hearing their harmonies in person and they didn’t disappoint. Their voices filled the performance space entirely and complement each other flawlessly. Performing songs off their 2012 EP and their upcoming debut, Wildewoman releasing October 15th such as my favorite, “Go Home”, “Turn It Around” and “Hey, Doreen”, their set was a sight to see.
