We’re not just here to dance. Except this song definitely came here to dance, in that amazing 2001 to 2008 guitar disco way. Remember when the NME still cost money?

Pfemme Records don’t have a lot of info in English, but via my Level 5 Duolingo Swedish (I’m working on it) and Google Translate, I have worked out that they’re a Swedish feminist indie rock collective. They have produced for us this awesome tune with splendidly, defiantly political lyrics and some proper dancefloor action. And now I know how to say ‘minimizing us is not an option’ in Swedish, amongst other important vocab building phrases.
