Lucy Dacus

Saturday 1 June

Occasionally, a singer pops up with the ability to perform songs as if they were written in the bedroom just a few hours earlier. Lucy Dacus is one of those special auteurs who can make every line from her lips pierce your spirit, the kind of subdued, melancholic songs that gradually burst at the seams with sprawling guitar work. Dacus makes the more frugal and ordinary reflections in life sound majestic and affirming, communicating her music with such sincerity, you’re immediately compelled to sing her words right back.

To a certain extent, her music feels like an old family photograph stationed on your night cabinet, an entity charged with sentiment and deeper meaning.
