The newest band we’ve heard out of Sweden is this “indie” pop group, The Royal Concept. I have a hard time calling them “indie,” however, since they’re signed to UMG-owned Universal Republic Records. This is just fun pop music written by a real band rather than a group of songwriters who never meet.
Anyway, “Naked & Dumb” is a catchy construction full of strings and swaggering beats about… well, about a stripper. Read Filip Bekic’s explanation of the lyrics below, and also stream and download the song thanks to Rolling Stone:
Lyrically, “Naked & Dumb” is about a stripper girl in a notorious club, who had a crush on [The Royal Concept singer] David and couldn’t let him go, and created a lot of drama. She stalked him for some time. I had waited for a song with enough syllables so I could describe their relationship in detail.
