This week we take a trip across the pond to enjoy a little Danish alternative rock in the form of Vikings, the latest offering from New Politics. Full disclosure: I just started listening to this album today, but I’m enjoying it so far. The more I’ve checked out new music over the past month, the less I’ve felt fulfilled. That’s not to suggest that there aren’t gems out there, it has just felt like I’ve had to sift through a lot of crap to get to it.
I’ve been wracking my brain today to figure out who this band sounds like and I have yet to come up with a direct comparison. There are times where they remind me of Passion Pit, Capitol Cities, and Empire of the Sun. Other times they remind me of Cloud Nothings or their fellow countrymen, Mew. Check out the full album, Vikings, and let me know what you think.
