SOTD: Common Deer – Wait

Canada’s Common Deer with “Wait,” our Song of the Day

For the second straight day, we feature an up and coming Canadian band with our Song of the Day.  Common Deer’s “Wait” is a delicious offering of pop rock.


The Toronto band boasts infectious boy/girl vocals from Graham  McLaughlin and Sheila Hart-Owens.  On “Wait,” the quintet offers up an invigorating sound drenched with pristine musicianship and catchy hooks. The song explodes with an urgent keyboard piece accompanied by raging drums, before McLaughlin’s distinctive vocals kick it up a notch.  Simply put, it’s a great song that deserves your attention. 

Upon my initial listen, I thought back to the first few times I heard Arcade Fire and Of Monsters and Men. It’s a different sound, but it’s that good. Check out our Song of the Day here:

Common Deer are a band that offers a hopeful view on life in these troubling times.  McLaughlin shares that they are, “Trying to create light in the darkness; it’s a mentality we share.”
