Toronto Punks Dilly Dally Herald Cannabis Legalization In Canada With Their Trippy ‘Marijuana’ Video

One of the best songs from the Toronto punk band Dilly Dally’s stellar new album Heaven, is a heavy and savage track titled “Marijuana.” Opening with a tidal wave of ferocious guitars, the song has a psychedelic tint that is gloriously disorienting in the best way. Today, to herald the recent legalization of weed in their home country of Canada, Dilly Dally have shared a trippy, animated video for that very same song.

During a recent interview I conducted with Dilly Dally singer Katie Monks, she called “Marijuana” her favorite song off Heaven, noting that it came together in only 20 minutes or so. “I’ve fallen in and out of love, Jesus, I can’t even count how many times, and certainly in the last two years it’s been maybe eight or nine or ten times,” she said of the song’s impetus. “This is one of the usual heartbreaks I suppose. I was smoking weed, and it was a really hot day, and I just played the chords and the song came pretty fast.”
