Lucius Prep New Album, ‘Good Grief,’ Celebrate With Ebullient Single

Indie-pop group hitches a ride with revolving door of oddballs in silly “Born Again Teen” video

Brooklyn indie-pop outfit Lucius will release their second LP, Good Grief, on March 11th via Mom + Pop and have announced the record with an irrepressible new single and video, “Born Again Teen.”

The album was produced by Shawn Everett (Weezer, Alabama Shakes, Julian Casablancas), who also helped engineer and mix the group’s 2013 debut, Wildewoman. Co-frontwoman Jess Wolfe said Lucius wrote and recorded Good Grief after two years on the road in support of Wildewoman.

“We had just returned from tour, having gone through such varied emotions — loneliness, sadness and exhaustion alongside excitement, fulfillment and some of the most joyful moments in our lives,” Wolfe added in a statement. “Whenever one of us had an idea or a feeling, the other was already a witness to it and could help navigate through it — for the two of us, this usually came in song form.”

Good Grief will be available to pre-order Friday, December 4th at 12:01 a.m. A deluxe edition will also be available digitally and features three demo tracks.

“Born Again Teen” marks the first offering from Good Grief, and finds Lucius reveling in the throes of a new love with adolescent euphoria.

In the track’s silly video, Wolfe and Laessig hitch a ride on “Oober Pool,” a carpool-share service that pairs them with an eager driver and a revolving door of odd fellow passengers. After getting pulled over by a cop, Wolfe and Laessig scurry around town, Benny Hill-style, before finding their way back to the car and arriving at their practice space.
