Lucius, the festival-friendly indie-pop band with the striking visual gimmick of dressing up its lead singers like mirror images of each other, has covered “Eventually” for their new acoustic EP, Nudes. I don’t like it as much as the original, but it verifies for me that “Eventually” is a masterful feat of composition even without Kevin Parker’s retro-futuristic psych-pop production. Behold:
