Premiere: Lucius get surreal in their ‘Something About You’ video

Lucius get surreal in their ‘Something About You’ video

The spacey pop-slab appears on their upcoming second album ‘Good Grief’.

Lucius have shared a fairly ‘out there’ new video for their latest single ‘Something About You’. It’s the third song they’ve revealed from their upcoming album ‘Good Grief,’ after previously releasing ‘Born Again Teen’ at the end of last year. ‘Good Grief’ comes out on 11th March via Play It Again Sam.

Lucius’ bonkers new video for ‘Something About You’ was directed by Los Angeles’ Mimi Cave, who has also directed several video bits and bobs for tUnE-yArDs in the past. Band vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig skip around a plastic world of pyramids and mysteriously opened doors, growing extremely long limbs, and dancing in blank white rooms (serious ‘Hotline Bling’ vibes, there) throughout.

Wobbling bass plucks, wafting synths sent straight from Saturn, and hypnotic kaleidoscopes; this is surreal, barmy pop music of the best kind. We’re dead chuffed to have the first play of Lucius’ ‘Something About You’ video. Have a watch below, and scroll down to check out the Brooklyn band’s upcoming European tour dates.
