Sixteen Scandals are a boisterous, punk-rock three-piece from Toronto who are gearing up for the release of their second full-length album, Nothing to C Here, this fall. In the lead up to the album’s drop date, the band have released two singles, the second of which, “C No Evil, Hear No Evil, Talk a Lot of Shit” (stream it on Apple Music and Spotify), came out on August 9th and is available now as a free song download. The track is a sarcastic, energetic blast of fresh air reminding everyone to stop acting so high-and-mighty; all set to the hook-laden adventure of a solid, two-minute punk rock song.
On the track, the guys from Sixteen Scandals elucidate their intentions by saying, “‘C No Evil…’ is both tongue-in-cheek and autobiographical, told from the perspective of the curmudgeon we all eventually become: stuck in our opinions, ignorant of facts, and balls deep in confirmation bias. Also politics. Duh. Both the left and the right are so convinced that they are correct; we don’t even try to understand anymore.”
So, next time you’re involved in political, social, environmental, or economic arguments with a myopic, strong-headed friend, enemy, or the always-intriguing frenemy, take advice from “C No Evil, Hear No Evil, Talk a Lot of Shit” and remember to explore your own biases and illogical assumptions. In the meantime, download the song and just enjoy an acerbic punk rock anthem.
