Lucius

"Turn It Around" & "Goodbye" (Paul McCartney cover) 

We first met the gals and guys from Lucius last November when they were in town playing a show with You Won't, who we were shooting a session with at the time. They were all very friendly and we could tell they were all a very talented bunch. Fast forward to two weeks ago. We became familiar with their self titled EP and grew quite fond of it, too. When we saw that Lucius would be in Philadelphia for a headlining show at Milkboy Philly, we knew we had to get them to play us a song or two.

 

After a quick conversation on Twitter and a few emails to confirm the times, Lucius made sure to squeeze us into their schedule. They ended up playing us two songs right at the upstairs bar of the venue minutes before doors opened. The first song they played us that night was a slightly reworked and energized, "Turn It Around."   
 
 After that, they asked if they could try to do a cover for us. Of course we were more than happy to document one more song. 

Little did we know the cover was going to be a Paul McCartney demo that was never actually recorded for The Beatles. It's called "Goodbye". If you want to hear the original, you're going to have to do some digging on Internet. For now, enjoy this version.
