BOTW #5 – New Politics

Happy Hump Day!
This week’s BOTW, NEW POLITICS, will surely cure your mid-week blues with their upbeat, rock-along songs.
Thanks to my local alternative radio station, 107.7 The End, I became acquainted with “Harlem”, their extremely catchy new single. If Hot Hot Heat and The Strokes came together to write a song, I am positive it would sound like “Harlem”. With the megaphone vocal filters, contagious dance-rock melodies, and air-drummable beats, headbanging and singing ruthlessly in your car is inevitable.
New Politics’ self-titled debut album was released in 2010. You can expect to find 10 quality songs that are danceable alt-rock infused with some Beastie Boy-esque raps and happier-Nirvana-esque quitar riffs (i.e. “Yeah Yeah Yeah”, “Love is a Drug”, “Dignity”).
These Danish rockers have definitely made a mark in the American alt/indie rock scene and I am stoked to get my hands on their second LP/see them live!
