LCMDF- Rookie

Finnish electro-pop duo LCMDF, comprised of sisters Emma and Mia Kemppainen have today unveiled their anthemic new single called "Rookie", which serves as the follow-up to their previously released singles, "Fooled" and "Procrastination 365".

Speaking on the track, Emma Kemppainen explains:

"I wrote this song the day after a music biz dude told me that I shouldn't write good songs, but make them more stupid. Then he offered to re-write our album. I thought that was the worst idea ever, so I wrote a song to him. The metal scene I'm singing about represents the old-school male dominated music business in Finland. The lyrics are simple, but hold an important message. I'm done with the fact that several music festivals don’t book a single female act. I'm done with being compared solely with other female acts. Girl is not a genre, it’s a gender. I'm done with a best before date for female artists. I'm done with women earning less than men. And I’m done with not speaking about this."

Listen to "Rookie" as well as Kristian Lindell's remix of "Procrastination 365" (free download) below and stay tuned for the single's music video along with more music from LCMDF coming soon.

Premiere via The Line of Best Fit.
