Neu Pick: LCMDF stand their ground against yet ‘Another Sucker’

Today’s Neu Pick comes from the newly returned Finnish pop duo.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from LCMDF.

Returning with their brand new banger ‘Another Sucker’ after ages hidden away in the studio, Finnish pop duo LCMDF are straight back on their first-rate pop shit. Their letter-heavy moniker is, of course, a shortening of their original name Le Corps Mince De Francoise; which, in turn, is a reference to Alex James’ love of smelly cheese and French pop star Francoise Hardy, natch. That tidbit should give a decent first insight into the spheres of brilliant ridiculousness sisters Emma and Mia Kemppainen operate in.

Cast in a similarly defiant mould to their last single ‘Rookie’ - which came out in 2015 - LCMDF melds shades of Icona Pop and (whisper it) Daphne Celeste with an unflappable talent for penning immediate, joyful pop songs.

While ‘Rookie’ took aim at the metal scene and pretentious dudes, ‘Another Sucker’ is all about standing your ground and ignoring the numerous suckers who suggest otherwise. “You can’t get to me, you’re just another sucker,” the hook announces, “and I won’t waste another second with you I’d rather use that time on me.”

Empowering, middle-finger-slinging pop at its finest, in other words. Have a watch of the video for ‘Another Sucker’ below.
