dichotomi shares visuals for their single “STF 17” [Video]

Emerging Toronto-based alternative rapper dichotomi shares their new single “STF 17” , a mellow summertime jam that serves as the lead single from the upcoming debut EP. The chilled bright and playful tune produced by fellow Toronto musician Frizzy Astro see them delivering melodic lines with heartfelt and evocative lyrics that dwell on the positive side of things.

The animated visual shows dichotomi enjoying the summer sun in the beach and just basking in the warm glory as their worries slowly fades away.

 

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘STF 17’, dichotomisays, “It was the first pandemic winter, and I was really sick… I couldn’t go outside because 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”.
