On the surface a cute, gently plucked guitar ‘n’ bass ditty featuring some delightful minimal electronic percussion, the song is a critique of gender identity and cultural appropriation in the music scene. But the Victoria electronic indie pop songwriter sings from an empathetic position of understanding, as well as a desire to educate and create change, as they discuss at length in an interview with Beatroute that’s well-worth reading.
“Stolen Song” is another great track from what’s sure to be a fantastic record. Armour is out February 19 on Coax Records, and is available for pre-order now. Rae Spoon is on tour across Canada this winter.
