Rambunctious Danish indie rockers New Politics formed in the late 2000s around the talents of vocalist David Boyd, guitarist/vocalist/keyboard player Søren Hansen, and drummer Louis Vecchio.
The band's high-energy, guitar-driven blend of punk, pop, and electronically induced dance-rock (Boyd specializes in wildly unpredictable stage posturing) eventually caught the ears (and eyes) of <a href=" data-name="RCA">RCA</a>, which signed the group in 2009. Fearing American anonymity, the band relocated to Brooklyn, New York, where they released their self-titled debut full-length in July of 2010. Their sophomore effort, A Bad Girl in Harlem, followed in 2013 and their single "Harlem" received a number of prominent placements, among them a Taco Bell commercial, several trailers for the film Frozen, and the Guitar Hero Live video game. After switching over to <a href=" data-name="Warner Bros.">Warner Bros.</a>-affiliated label DCD2 Records, New Politics released their third LP, Vikings, in late 2015. In 2017, after spending two years on the road, the band released a new single, the uplifting "One of Us." The band's fourth LP, Lost In Translation, will be out October 2017.
