Norwegian dancepunks DATAROCK have a new single out, and it might have my favorite song title of the year. "DISCObedience" is a dance song that is as absurdly fun as a dance song should be, but it is far from your typical dance song. The structure of the track is mostly straightforward dance, but there are just weird little musical sounds from electronic blips to horns that blare out of nowhere and then just immediately fade to keep this from being a mainstream dance song. It has all the edge of punk and the fun of dance, but it's just a slight bit too odd for the average dance music fan, and perfect for weirdos like us.
Frontman Fredrik Saroea says of the band's new single:
“Hopefully one day, we'll see one of these nonviolent, civic disobedience gatherings dancing to the beat of their very own soundtrack. What a clever and charming civic disobedience that riot police can't aggressively shut down, right?”
You can watch the video for "DISCObedience" below. Media Consumption Pyramid is due out September 29 on YAP Records. For more on DATAROCK, check out the artist's website.
