Lucy Dacus Shares Lush Animated Video for "VBS"
The track comes from her forthcoming 'Home Video' LP
Published May 19, 2021Indie rocker Lucy Dacus has been teasing her next LP Home Video for a while, giving us tastes with "Thumbs" and "Hot & Heavy." Today she's offered yet another taste with a lush animated music video for a new song called "VBS."
Of the song, Dacus shared the following statement:
VBS means vacation Bible school, and I went to tons of them. It's where Christian parents send their kids over the winter, spring, or summer breaks from school to get closer to God, maybe learn some outdoor skills, and bring home useless crafts and totems like fruit of the spirit sand art and purity rings. I wrote the song in the van on the way to Nashville to record Home Video after seeing one of those readerboards outside a church advertising a wholesome church camp for kids. I thought about my first boyfriend, who I met at VBS, the resident bad boy who loved Slayer and weed more than Jesus. I took it upon myself to save him, and make him stop doing drugs (with an exception for snorting nutmeg). God, I was so lame.
The song arrives with a new music video that is an impressive work of art in its own right. The clip was directed by Marin Leong and can be viewed below.
Home Video arrives on June 25 via Matador.
