"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," explains Emma Kemppainen, talking about LCMDF's new cut "Rookie".
"Then he offered to re-write our album. I thought that was the worst idea ever, so I wrote a song to him."
"Rookie" meshes the forward-moving bubblegum pop sound the Kemppainen have been making lately with a punk-as-fuck spirit and pure, simple common sense. It's the most perfect two minute and thirty seconds you'll hear in 2015 too.
"The metal scene I'm singing about represents the old-school male dominated music business in Finland," adds Emma "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."
A video is set to follow for the track, with more new material in the spring.
