In this episode, Maggie is joined by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, who together make up the duo Lucius. Jess and Holly tell Maggie about the early days of their collaboration, how their unique sound and bold visual presence came together, and how they’ve navigated relationships in and out of the band over the years. The three discuss what’s next for Lucius and touring plans for 2022.


After meeting at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Wolfe and Laessig moved to Brooklyn and made their debut with 2013’s Wildewoman. Their sophomore album Good Grief arrived in 2016, encompassing everything from glitzy rhythmic pop to songs channeling the charm and crushed innocence of ’60s girl groups. They now reside in Los Angeles.
