Cat Velez - 4th Feb 2016

Mimi Cave has put together these wonderfully weird visuals for four-piece LA indie-pop band Lucius. Perfectly matching in tawny suits and apricot-coloured bobs, the ladies of the band Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig distort and multiply in a gallery of flat colour, Greek columns and rectangular plinths.

Commanding the viewer's attention through its symmetric graphics, sophisticated colour palette and full-fledged, grandiose performances, the waggish addition of the artists' David Byrne-esque, elongated arms is the icing on an the cake.
