It seems that more and more countries are lurching to the right-wing, and Poland can now be added that list as their Conservative party eased to victory this week. One country that's bucking the trend is Canada who recently elected their Liberal party to power, but not without the usual pantomime-style ridicule and stupid statements that accompany elections. Young Canadian musician and producer Thomas Little, AKA Dazy Crown, may be based in the UK at the moment, but he's been keeping his eye on what's going on at home, and as a result of the Conservative propaganda (and general actions) he's written this deceivingly politically-charged new song.
Why deceivingly? Well, 'Common Scents' sounds like the kind of chilled, carefree guitar-pop that's built for lazy summer days rather than a vented spleen at poor policy decisions (and specifically, a Liberal-baiting advert about the supposed stupidity of legalizing cannabis). Don't be fooled into thinking this is some stoner teen though, because Little's argument for the legalization is more about possible other uses than wasting your days away. This is all wrapped up in a pretty and melodic pop song with a sunny guitar twang though, and anyway, the Liberals won, so the Tories can stick that in their pipe and smoke it.
