Scenic Route to Alaska “Polarized” – Listen

The funny thing is that Scenic Route to Alaska  don’t have the issues you might think of when listening to their new song ‘Polarized‘.  That upcoming election – it’s a problem for their neighbours to the South; they might have the Queen on their cash but Brexit isn’t their problem either – Canada already has a trade deal with the EU.  Smart.

The Edmonton trio aren’t going to sit on their hands though – they’re looking to make sense of a world where antagonism comes in waves that are linearly out of phase.  Polarization – both sides completely out of sink so that “can’t we just all be decent to each other” and “let’s hate everyone not like us” just can’t find a point of agreement.  It’s not enough  to ask “when did everything get lost?  Will it always be this way ?  Will it always feel the same?” it has to change, as they declare “We got to do it for them we got to do it for the generations coming next.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
