Lucy Dacus - "I Don't Wanna be Funny Anymore" (Official Music Video)

-

Virginia singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus dropped her latest album No Burden last month. It’s excellent. The lead single “I Don’t Wanna Be Funny Anymore” is a highly relatable jam; I’m sure you could substitute “funny” for a multitude of words to make it apply to you. No one wants to be put in a box, and this song is like poking fresh air holes in that box and reminding yourself that you don’t have to be what everyone expects you to be.

Today, the song gets a matching clip from director Hunter Brumfield that is just as easy to identify with. Dacus is performing deadpan standup at what looks like a high school talent show. It begins with her singing the lyrics sans smiles or any warmth at all. Then members of the crowd get to break out of the boxes they’ve been placed in as they mouth specific lines from Dacus’ that seem to stereotypically apply to them. It’s a smart visual take on a song that universally registers.
