Lucy Dacus “Thumbs”

“Thumbs” is the shattering new single from singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus. The song shows Lucy poignantly offering to protect a loved-one through lyricism that avoids metaphor in favor of stark directness: “I would kill him, if you let me,” Lucy sings over cold ambiance, offering to shield a friend from their estranged father. Yet again, Lucy Dacus has produced a devastatingly gorgeous ballad.
