The Radio Dept. don’t use their songs for specific political protests often but when they do, they make sure they don’t go unnoticed. After 2008’s “Freddie And The Trojan Horse,” about the Swedish Right-wing givernment, they are back this week with with “The New Improved Yypocrisy,” released only a few days before the next general election to the Swedish parliament, to be held on September 19th.
With lyrics such as “We don’t mind democracy/We have our ways around it/This new improved hypocrisy/Will help us to impound it,” you can be sure they have a very strong stance about things in their country are shaping out. Listen to it HERE.
