Local rapper releases song about flowers.
December 4, 2015 – Iqaluit, Nunavut (Canada)
Alaskan Daisy is the latest single by Iqaluit-based music-producer Thor Simonsen – also know by his stage name, THOR. The song is an acoustic, rap-inspired song about a boy whose love for a colourful flower prompts him to take good care of said flower.
“The song is so cheesy that I’d probably hate it if I heard it on the radio.” says Thor. “However, when writing it, I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of traditionally-masculine rap music being used with traditionally-feminine subject matter like flowers. It’s not very manly or ‘gangster’ to rap about flowers. But, this is the music I feel compelled to create.”
Thor, who created the song entirely by himself (including the cover art), has previously worked with many other prominent musicians. He began his musical career as a rapper and DJ in Scandinavia. His most recent project, the Nunavut-based pop-collective Ajungi ᐊᔪᙱ, was featured on national radio and received international acclaim.
Alaskan Daisy is available for free download until Christmas Day.
