4. New Politics
Everyone's favorite Danish indie rockers are back on the road this spring. After releasing album number four "Lost In Translation" in October, the trio is hitting the venues to tour the new record. "Lost In Translation" carried over the badass alternative pop vibe we all know and love with New Politics. They are a versitle group however, showcasing their stripped down piano skills in lead single "One of Us." The depth of this group musically makes for a great show- transitioning from frontman David Boyd breakdancing, to drummer Louis Vecchio's drum solos to their slowed-down piano played tunes by the truly talented guitarist Soren Hansen. They are bringing along alternative on-the-rise artists The Wrecks (who just released a new EP) and DREAMERS. These danes always have a great show up their sleeves and this tour should be no exception.
