If you’re not already a card-carrying member of the New Politics fan club, you should really rectify that situation. We here at l’il ol’ Buzzworthy are so into these Brooklyn-via-Denmark garage punk-poppers that we have our membership cards laminated! Oh we fancy, huh!?
New Politics was one of MTV’s 9 Artists To Watch In 2011. And it’s easy to see why. They mix the primal scream of garage rock (think The Hives) with some keyboard squeals and unforgettable hooks. On their self-titled album, released last July, the band–comprising David Boyd, Søren Hansen and Poul Knudsen–race through 10 breakneck songs that never pause for a breath.
So that’s what they sound like, but what’s New Politics like? Glad you asked! New Politics is this month’s MTV Posted band, which means you should head over to Posted.mtv.com where you’ll get more New Politics videos, blogs, tweets and photos than you may be equipped to handle.
