Toronto-hailing artist dichotomi is back with a new single titled “STF 17”.
A relatable and memorable summer anthem, the track takes you on a journey to Ontario’s capital city and centres around a celebration of good vibes and nature.
On the track, dichotomy said, “It was the first pandemic winter, and I was really sick… I couldn’t go outside because of the weather, and I had no energy or motivation to make life inside more enjoyable because of the mental and physical effects of the pandemic. At a real low point, I started fantasizing about summers in Toronto and told myself that ‘everything will be better in the summer’ – as soon as I said it aloud, I felt compelled to write a song on that theme.
“The track quickly took a political lean as I began to ruminate on the social, political, and economic forces that forced me into such a fragile position in the first place. ‘STF 17’ is most definitely a critique of our capitalist society, but with the added goal of offering some levity — allowing us to hope for a more equitable future. Be critical, be angry, be sad, but don’t let the state of this world keep you from turning your face to the sun every chance you get, and tirelessly seek the tiniest moments of joy”.
