Lucy Dacus, “Forever Half Mast”

Lucy Dacus
“Forever Half Mast”
Digital Single (Matador)
The Virginia native is such a sharp songwriter, and her new 4th of July single beautifully considers what it’s like to live in a country that you kind of love but just won’t stop letting you down. “Yes you’re evil, but you’re not that bad,” Dacus muses over wistful pedal steel and strummed acoustic guitars. Unsurprisingly, the clear skies don’t last long, giving way to chunky layers of distorted guitars and pounding drums, which mirror the chaos and disorder that accompanies every element of modern American life.
