One of my very favorite bands ever, Denmark’s New Politics, brought some serious excitement to Neumos on February 26th. This was my fourth time seeing the band, who always share such energetic love with their fans. New Politics’ fans at the show partied along to songs off their two great albums such as “Dignity,” “Just Like Me,” “Harlem,” “Goodbye Copenhagen,” and “Yeah Yeah Yeah,” and also felt the grips of “Tonight You’re Perfect,” “Stuck on You,” and “Fall Into These Arms.” At one point singer/dancer David Boyd stopped to change shirts, exchanging first sweat drenched top, which he was able to rinse out completely, with a New Politics Denmark shirt. Then they taught the crowd a little Danish, “Vi esker jer,” then responding with, “Vi esker jer,” too, and telling us they’ll be on tour with Fall Out Boy this summer.
