Phone a friend: Lucius - part 2
by MPR

As a part of her "Phone a friend" series, Jill Riley has been taking phone (and Zoom!) calls with various artists throughout this extended quarantine period to see how they are holding up, and how this global pandemic has affected their lives and art.

Here she chats with Holly and Jess of Lucius about life in LA, writing in a pandemic and their new weekend hang series "Two of us on the Couch".

Listen to the interview above, RSVP here to watch a movie with Lucius this Saturday at 7:30 CDT, and stay tuned for new music someday in the future, which according to them might be trending in a "dancey" direction.

"It's so strange to feel the most togetherness maybe ever and be so far apart from one another. But there is a hope and a renewed sense of belief in our community and communities because of this and I really hope that some good comes out of it like the air being cleaner and maybe awareness for one another and also the fact that people are reaching out and having conversations with people they haven't spoken to in years, there are good things that are coming out of this. Hopefully a lot of art too." -Jess Wolfe, Lucius
