Uncle Lucius recently released their awesome fourth studio album The Light, which showed their ability to fuse Americana driven rock with a folk sensibility. From the honest lyrical content to the hooky melodies, it proved itself the finest of their recordings to date. To celebrate with them, you can join the audience flocking to their live UK shows later this year, but in the meantime we caught up with them to take them on a trip down musical memory lane.
