Lucy Dacus - "Brando"


With only a few weeks to go before she releases her highly anticipated third record, Lucy Dacus shared another excellent track from the album.

"Brando" kicks off with a simple drum pattern and Lucy's luscious voice. Slowly, guitar feeds in and the pace quickens as her lyrics take the wheel and drive the song forward. It's an open and honest song that is filled with lush, warm guitar tones that gives it shape as steady rhythms hold it firmly in place. This is another excellent example of Dacus' lyrics working overtime and once again showcases her immense talents. This would be easy to chalk up as a simple, easy track, but the words here are revealing and continue to highlight her stunning craftsmanship and brilliant songwriting skills.
