Dubbed the mystical “Sister Sirens of Swamp”, the Atlanta Georgia-based (by way of the Okefenokee Swamplands of Southern Georgia) BEAU + LUCI have been enchanting fans for a minute now, with their smokey timbres and sultry storytelling.
“…we finally feel like we’ve broken through and are saying what we’ve wanted to say for years. And people are listening.”
Influenced by the likes of Alex Turner, Stevie Nicks, Johnny Cash, and Emmylou Harris, these two young ladies have left critics and industry pros alike at a loss for words when attempting to define, categorize, or box their sound. (Something they’ve been fighting-off since day one.) Their captivating sonic essence is self-evident in previous works which include 2017’s Fire Dancer, as well as a host of singles.
Contained within their latest live effort, BEAU + LUCI LIVE From Aggie Theatre (which features The Howling Tongues, and was performed and recorded in Fort Collins, Colorado), the lead-off song, Rattle The Bones, strikes a chord.
Thick, heavy guitar riffs, and dense percussion lace the ladies’ perpetual trademark harmonies. And, in this modern-day tale of the journey across the valley of the shadow of death, those harmonies are never subsequent to the music. A haunting and creative break at the 2:30 mark allows the sisters just a moment to set the intention…
“No where since the cradle, no peace with my soul
Hear that road callin’, gotta ramble on…”
Lyrically articulate and intentional, if you enjoy Rattle The Bones, be sure to give the rest of the performance a listen. There you’ll find more of that grimy, hard-edged instrumentation colliding wonderfully with that spell-binding vocal/lyrical goodness.
Shook Twins meets The Black Keys…
