It’s an icy-cool landscape of low clouds at dawn, with frozen smoke and whispers of psychedelic love on a ghost wind. The concept of self-medication: as old as life itself.

But the message reaches a new, fevered pitch: the cannabis revolution is here, we have corporations taking over the mom-and-pop grows, why not have an anthem for the disaffection?

Is it the root or the stem?

Is anyone paying attention?

Gavrielle is a Seattle-born and Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter. Her 2018 debut EP is called Hollywood Is Dead. This song is featured on our Groovy Summer playlist.
