Album Review

On their second album, Danish alt-rock power trio New Politics attempt to ditch the safety net of their influences to strike out on their own with A Bad Girl in Harlem. Where their self-titled 2010 debut found them mining the sounds of alternative radio, their sophomore effort finds them turning their dial towards the pop charts with a slicker, more polished sound. And even though the hand of the producers is more apparent than ever, the albums standout track definitely comes by way of "Just Like Me," a raw, no-frills rocker that really lets the band spread their wings and get rowdy for a minute. Though fans of the band might miss the more natural sound of New Politics' previous album, A Bad Girl in Harlem still delivers plenty of the hooky, infectious pop for them to crank up and sing along to.

Am I a snob?

I thought there first release had such a different sound than what I was used to hearing and an awesome message; it sounded like three guys who really found something with the minimal instruments they seemed to make work so well! This sounds like most of it was made on a computer… all the songs kind of just blend together. They are catchy in the sense that Kesha is catchy, not in the sense that captured my attention on the first album. I get that bands need to grow and change but this just seems like a sell out. not a change in sound.

Not out yet.....but

This is terrible!

What the hell is this? Their last album was so good, just good old rock and roll packed full of their own bold, raw sound. This is just computerized crap that I could hear on the radio any day. I'm really dissapointed. I can't believe they sold out this fast.


Formed: 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

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 Poul Amaliel. 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 RCA, who signed the group in 2009. Fearing American anonymity, the band relocated to Brooklyn, New York, where they...
