TUNE The Great Dictators - Existential Needs (feat. Julie Gro)
The critically acclaimed indie rockers The Great Dictators have returned with the single ‘Existential Needs’. The track is both punchy and laid back and delivers a new electronic vibe from the Danish masters of melancholy.
The lyrics revolves around a bitter man who feels wronged because he still doesn’t understand the #metoo movement. He’s not able to cope with women craving equality and times changing.
The track features Danish singer Julie Gro who’s elegantly fed up with him.
A lot of understated humor oozes throughout ‘Existential Needs’ with sentences like “R-E-S-P-E-C-T, but what about me?” together with at least one Trump reference.
Lead singer Dragut Lugalzagosi explains:
“It was a weird experience writing the lyrics trying to get into the role as an angry man opposing the #metoo movement. But I had to make a song on the subject which remains extremely important all around the world. We sincerely hope that we don’t attract #metoo haters who don’t understand the irony in ‘Existential Needs’. Otherwise they’ll get a loving kick in the nuts.”
The Great Dictators will release a new album ‘One Eye Opener’ April 17th via Celebration Records. It will be their first album in over 3 years since ‘Women’ in 2016.
