Lucy Dacus releases her hotly-awaited second album Historian today, March 2. Greeted by a multitude of rave reviews, and recently profiled in the New York Times under the heading ‘How an Indie-Rock Star Is Made in 2018 – Dacus is emerging as an essential new voice, and Historian an early 2018 highlight. The album is

available to listen to HERE. It was previewed by singles ‘Night Shift’, ‘Addictions’ and ‘Next Of Kin’.

The 22-year-old singer and songwriter from Richmond, Virginia, will be bringing her elegant, insightful and altogether devastating set of new songs to UK venues in April, including a London show at Omeara on April 25, alongside further European dates.

In a recent profile in US publication The Ringer, Dacus said, “If I had to encapsulate all of my creative identity in a word, it would be ‘historian’ before it would be ‘musician,’ or ‘writer,’ or anything… I document people and try to capture them in all these different ways. And then when they’re gone, I’m going to have all these little emblems of who they are.”
