Lucy Dacus releases the sweet “Kissing Lessons”

Date:

 

Last year’s Home Video was a remarkable highlight of Lucy Dacus’ ascendant career, and she’s got a leg of tour dates coming up with Indigo de Souza (who we interviewed as a part of our 2021 recap) that will see her take the songs of Home Video to cities she’s not yet visited. Today, Dacus has released the charming one-off single “Kissing Lessons” in advance of those dates. “Kissing Lessons” is available for pre-order on a 7″ that will also include “Thumbs Again”.

“Kissing Lessons” is a sweet and relatable track that details a childhood infatuation felt by Dacus in second grade. It’s a short and sweet track, clocking in right under two minutes, with a handful of lines that’ll be quotable to anyone listening that had that giddy euphoria of a childhood crush. In typical Dacus fashion, it culminates to a somewhat heartbreaking end, as the crush moves away and she wonders:  “I don’t remember when we stopped hanging out, / but I still wear a letter R charm on my bracelet / and wonder if she thinks of me as her first kiss.” Watch the video for “Kissing Lessons” directed by Mara Palena below, and check out her tour dates while you’re scrolling.
