Dilly Dally have released a fiery new video for ‘Marijuana’

Dilly Dally have released a new video for their track ‘Marijuana’.

It’s the latest cut from the band’s new album 'Heaven’, which came out just a few weeks ago and will see them tour the UK in January.

Singer/guitarist Katie Monks says of the clip: "We’ve been inhaling so much fear and hate from our televisions, our leaders, social media… I don’t know about you, but the anxiety and eventual depression became overbearing.

"The only way I could keep functioning, and get through writing this record, was with some assistance from weed. Basically, if I didn’t write anything good by sun down - I would smoke sativa for good measure. It would clear my creative pathways, help me forget about the expectations of others, and almost hide away in my own protective energy field.

"Legalisation in Canada is one tiny step toward an uphill battle of reconciliation with all of our citizens – primarily people of colour - who for decades have been arrested unfairly for dealing, possession, etc. There are still many laws prohibiting how we’re able to access, consume, and sell cannabis.

"So while we still have a long way to go - I’m happy to contribute a song that may perhaps help shed off the stigma that weed is anything other than a sacred tool that many cultures cherish. It needs to be respected."

Feelin' hypersonic: Sam Fender

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
