Danish band The Great Dictators recently released their new single “Play Dead Together.” The track is inspired The Psychedelic Furs, Yo La Tengo, and our guess a bit of The Velvet Underground. Fans of the forementioned band, will definitely gravitate towards the Copenhagen based band. The track is off their forthcoming release One Eye Opener, out April 17th via Celebration Records

Dragut Lugalzagosi, lead singer for The Famous Dictators on “Play Dead Together:”

“Before I started writing the songs my mission was to deconstruct elements in popular music, make songs out of all the bits and pieces and let something different emerge. I’ve always been a fan of most genres, pop included, and also attracted to flipping things around. The Devil is in the details and hopefully there’ll be a lot of details one can dive into. The Devil also appears in the lyrics which dissect my personal life and comment on the state of the world.”
