Before the pandemic began, D.G. Adams had his sight on another — and continuing — issue facing the world. Unfit leadership and a rise of right-wing values concerned him, and out of his worry came “Dangerous”. Of course, in our current moment, the lyrics of the song take on a whole new resonance: one that is at once prophetic and thoroughly modern.
D.G. Adams is a trained Shakespearean actor with hooks in the Canadian theatre and music worlds. With guidance from his friend and Canadian music — and theatre — icon Torquil Campbell of the band Stars, Adams began his music career.
“Dangerous” has a heat to it. There is some reminder of Santana in the guitar line, but the vocals remain cool as Adams curses those in power who lack empathy. For all the smoothness, the lyrics beget anger. “Cast that devil out,” is repeated, and background vocalists repeat the ominous title “dangerous” to the song’s conclusion.
This is a track of the post-truth times that we live in, as well as a taste of what is to come on Adams’ upcoming record “Nexxt!” To keep up with D.G. Adams, you can find him on his Reverbnation, Soundcloud, and Facebook page. You can also follow him on Twitter for more music and news.
