Lucy Dacus - Historian
Dacus' breathtaking 2015 debut album, No Burden, earned her the heavy title of indie rock's 'next big thing'. But Historian proves the 22-year-old is just getting started.
It wasn't without merits: a gifted songwriter and skilled guitarist with a shape-shifting voice that growls as effortlessly as it glides, she's the rare sort of artist who seemed to arrive fully formed. But Historian proves the 22-year-old is just getting started. Rich with daring left turns and penetrating lyrics about death and grief, it's a scintillating sophomore album that's rooted in sadness and resolved in hope.
