Dan Mangan "Post-War Blues" (video)
Published Apr 13, 2012Having recently nabbed a couple of Juno Awards, husky-voiced Vancouver heartthrob Dan Mangan has released a video for "Post-War Blues" from his recent Oh, Fortune, out now on Arts & Crafts.
This Dr. Strangelove-parodying clip is part comedic, part political, as it shows a group of world leaders starting a war, announcing cuts to public funding, and replacing kids' musical instruments with guns. Things get hopeful when the students stage a protest, but the clip takes an explosive turn in the final moments. There's a notable lack of Dan's bearded face, but it's nevertheless a compelling video.
