I really like what’s happening with pop music right now. Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber aside, I can really appreciate what people are doing with the “pop sound.” In my own personal opinion, it’s becoming fun again. I don’t know if I missed out on something for awhile there, but pop music has captured my attention recently, and I find myself listening to it more than ever. One artist that’s been on my radar for the past year is Toronto’s own David Fischer, otherwise known as DCF. If you haven’t heard him, it’s only a matter of time before you do. He’s been buzzing in the Canadian scene, opening for both Mariana’s Trench and Down With Webster, as well as writing for a couple successful Canadian artists.
We’ve all seen the posts about how many people it took to write some of the simplest pop songs; it’s refreshing to see Fischer taking a completely different approach with his songwriting. Across the board the lyrics are witty and cleverly written, in turn making his pop songs fresh and exciting. Earlier this month, DCF released the new video for his song “John Cusack.” If you haven’t found your song of the summer, this may be it. If you’re in you’re 20s, it’s hard not to have a soft spot for the music of DCF as there’s a theme of young love, parties, friends, living in the city… and as far as “John Cusack” goes, what girl doesn’t love a reference to Cusack holding up that boom box outside Diane’s window in Say Anything?
Full of hooks and great lyrics, DCF will be on repeat either on your iPod or in your head soon enough. Follow him on Twitter and make sure to like him on Facebook to be updated on any tour announcements. The release date for DCF’s debut album, Songs For My Friends, will be revealed as soon as it’s ready to be released later this year – keep your eyes open for that.
