There will always be a place in the world for youthful pop anthems. Transviolet’s “New Bohemia” flirts with that over-the-top, idealistic type of rebellion that you see in teen movies, but teen movies can be awesome, and that take-over-the-world attitude can be inspiring. Plus, at its core, “New Bohemia” is a great song with strong production and an unforgettable chorus.

Of the song, the band says: “New Bohemia is a mindset. It’s the belief that each individual has the power to change the world. It’s letting go of the prejudices, and stereotypes that have kept us divided, and uniting to create the world we want. We, as a generation, have the power to eliminate racism, sexism and homophobia. We, as a generation, can choose to put an end to police brutality, to war, to violence, to the destruction of our environment; but we must speak up. Everyday, we decide what our world looks like.”

Transviolet already won us over with their last two releases, but this one has us convinced that this Los Angeles-based band has what it takes to break out in a major way. Their self-titled EP drops tomorrow.
