Call it rock, call it rap rock, call it indie, whatever you want to call their style, New Politics is an awesome band. Out of Copenhagen, Denmark, the trio made up David Boyd, Soren Hansen and Louis Vecchio has made their mark on the American college music scene. The band’s hit songs “Harlem,” “Dignity,” and “Tonight You’re Perfect” haven’t gotten old yet and the tunes frequent our airwaves as well as student run stations all over the country.
New Politics has two albums to their name, but the most recent A Bad Girl in Harlem dropped in May of last year. The album has received pretty solid reviews and the band is currently on tour promoting the record. Thefirenote.com said this about A Bad Girl in Harlem:
“With their sophomore album, New Politics breaks away from their gritty, indie roots, trading it in for a pop rock, punk sound.”
With a different sound in their sophomore album New Politics has shown they aren’t a one-trick pony and can evolve their sound over time.
New Politcis will be performing in the northwest in Portland on Feb. 25 at Aladdin Theater and Feb. 26 in Seattle at Neumos. Don’t miss out on seeing this awesome foreign powerhouse rock Seattle!
