New Politics had a tough job ahead of them last night at Terminal 5: entertaining a crowd waiting for what was likely their first Fall Out Boy show in years. The Danish band however did not disappoint. They riled up the crowd with their intense rock show fully equipped with break dancing, crowd surfing, and guitar throwing.
What New Politics do best is put on a show. Every second spent on stage is another moment surely to be ingrained into the minds of whoever is watching. There wasn’t any fancy lights or mesmerizing backdrops to take away from their set, but merely two banners sporting their logo. However New Politics don’t really need much to put on a great show. Their charisma and enigmatic stage presence can make up for the most humble of stage set ups. Lead vocalist David Boyd was nothing if not impressive. His fearlessness was captivating as was his break dancing skills. Whether he was climbing on top of the crowd or merely crooning the rock songs of New Politics, the smile that seemed permanently plastered on his face was radiant.
Throughout their entire set, it was evident that each member of New Politics was having a great time and that translated into the crowd. The audience was yearning for more and New Politics gave it their all.
New Politics is David Boyd, Søren Hansen, Louis Vecchio.
