This week’s Track of the Week is the single, “Everywhere I Go (Kings and Queens)” by New Politics.

New Politics is a Danish rock band who released their third studio album “Vikings,” in August of this year. The album has high energy with an upbeat and catchy punk indie rock feel.

“Everywhere I Go (Kings and Queens)”’s underlying meaning is when you feel like you are nothing, you should stand up and prove that you are somebody, because there are others that feel just like you.

There’s evidence of that in the lyrics “this one’s for everyone that said I’m nothing/This one’s for my friends that don’t give a f**k.”

New Politics does a fantastic job of writing about things that aren’t superficial. They make this song loud and make it command attention which is the perfect way to distract yourself when you feel upset or when you feel like rocking out.

This is a great song for when you’re driving around town, or when you just want to escape the world. The lyrics “We’ve been up, we’ve been down, we got over it/ Everywhere we go, we’re the kings and queens, and we run this city” allude to the fact of wanting to rock out and feel like you are on top of the world.

Since the song has numerous cuss words, it probably shouldn’t be played where there are children or parents around but play it if you just don’t give a f**k.

Listen to “Everywhere I Go” below and listen to the full album on Itunes, and check the band out on Facebook.
