Lucy Dacus is done thinking small. Two years after her 2016 debut, No Burden, won her unanimous acclaim as one of rock's most promising new voices, Dacus returns on March 2 with Historian, a remarkably assured 10-track statement of intent. It finds her unafraid to take on the big questions — the life-or-death reckonings, and the ones that just feel that way. It's a record full of bracing realizations, tearful declarations and moments of hard-won peace, expressed in lyrics that feel destined for countless yearbook quotes and first tattoos.
Quinn is an Athabaskan and Inupiaq songwriter who was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. Quinn addresses his childhood and his role as a transgender individual navigating Alaska's social landscape through his music.
"Taylor Janzen sets her warm, expressive voice against a ringing electric guitar, but otherwise leaves her sad words largely unadorned as she sings frankly and with remarkable clarity about dysfunctional relationships and mental health. It's an approach that situates her alongside like-minded breakout stars like Stella Donnelly and Phoebe Bridgers, as well as Paramore's awesome Hayley Williams, who's sung Janzen's praises online." - NPR MUSIC
