LUCIUS premiere video “GONE INSANE”

LUCIUS premiere video "GONE INSANE", the track comes off their latest release 'Good Grief'.

Lucius have released their new video for the track “Gone Insane”. Of the video, vocalist Jess Wolfe says, “The video was inspired by a dream I had… In short, Holly was sitting across from me moving my face, as if it were clay. The idea of perception and illusion and perspective, dysmorphia…All driving me a bit crazy. She took that concept and added to it… a mannequin, a spinning room, and thousands of photographs later with the incredible work of Nathan and Katie Johnson, our vision came to life.” Director Nathan Johnson adds, “It basically turned out to be a month-long project that included 20 hours in a makeup chair and 4 grueling days in front of the stop-motion rig. In the end, we used a combination of stop-motion, go-motion, and intervalometric photography to capture everything… All told, we shot more than 20,000 photographs, which were eventually edited down to the final 3,000 images you see in the film.” The song appears on their new album Good Grief, out now via Dine Alone Records and Mom + Pop Records.

Good Grief was produced by Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Weezer) and Lucius with Bob Ezrin, and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Beck). Of Good Grief, vocalist Jess Wolfe says, “When we started writing for this record, we had been away from home for nearly two years. 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…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.” Vocalist Holly Laessig adds, “…When considering titles, we wanted to be sure to acknowledge any serious subject matter, while simultaneously allowing ourselves a comic sigh of relief from any personal turmoil. Ha! The yin and yang of the record naturally unveiled itself and, so, Good Grief.”

Lucius is led by its co-founders and vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig accompanied by multi-instrumentalists Andrew Burri, Peter Lalish and Dan Molad.
