Vancouver artist DG Adams taps into the emotional frustrations we’re all feeling in this pandemic world in new single “Dangerous.” Although the song was originally born before the pandemic, the lyrics nail everything that is going wrong right now. But despite the heavy-hearted theme, there is a cathartic element to it where DG Adams calls for action. Built on layers of striking percussions and raw boldness, “Dangerous” delivers a politically-charged message where he chants “But don’t you forget / To cast the devil out.” At its core, the track is a rock piece that has been weaved with the rhythmic elements of folk, yielding a soothingly edgy soundscape where he lets us pour out all the frustrations we’ve built.

On his new single, DG Adams shared: “‘Dangerous’ was written before the pandemic hit. I was thinking about environmental and societal degradation, particularly that caused by the current POTUS and his flunkies. Then came Covid_19 and suddenly the song seemed so apropos, and releasing it became much more urgent.”
DG Adams broke into the scene with his debut album Feminine Endings, which is a Shakespearean reference. Adams, who has been making music since the age of fifteen, is a classically-trained actor and Shakespeare teacher for the past 33 years. He has also appeared in various movies and TV shows including Fox’s Alacatraz, Lifetime’s Merlin and the Book of Beasts, and MGM’s The Betrayed. Be on the lookout for DG Adams’ upcoming album Nexxt!
