Complete with hand-drawn hearts and Polaroids, ‘Kissing Lessons’ is another gem mined from Dacus’ childhood in Richmond, Virginia.
It was recorded and mixed during the ‘Home Video’ sessions and stood out with its sweet and relatable reflection of childhood infatuation as Dacus sings atop infectious guitars, “We’d take turns being seduced / Imagining the day it would come into use / Imagining the day we’d start breaking hearts / And taking names.”
Available to independent retailers, the 7” single includes a beautiful 14” x 14” double-sided insert that features a comic detailing some of the story behind ‘Thumbs’.
