Lucy Dacus – “Addictions” Video

Last month, Lucy Dacus announced her sophomore album, Historian, and released its first single, the blisteringly good “Night Shift” — we interviewed her about it — and today she’s back with another song from it, “Addictions,” alongside a video that she directed herself. The song is a wistful rumination about the kind of repetitive behaviors that land us into trouble, and the video echoes that by following around a girl who looks at everything through a black-and-white photo frame. The track’s expansive and persistently catchy, and you can listen to it below.
