Listen to Lucius Cover Tears for Fears’ ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World’
Even though Lucius' Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe are known for bringing their powerful vocals to songs, their new cover of an '80s classic takes a more subtle approach.
Listen to their new take on Tears for Fears' 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World':
Instead of going hard with the cover, the New York-based indie-pop group uses synths to build a light foundation for Laessig and Wolfe's seamless harmonies. It's a super-chill take that transports things to a whole new level of mellow.
The song serves as the B-side of Lucius' new 'Genevieve" single. And this isn't the first time that they've dipped back into the '80s. Last month at Governors Ball, they pulled out a version of Whitney Houston's 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' that was a definite highlight of the weekend-long fest.
