Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Brooklyn pop-punks The Tracys have returned from a five year hiatus with a brand new single. It’s a satirical, Ramones-inspired love song dedicated to a Russian spy; how romantic! Dying Scene is proud to bring you this exclusive premiere of the music video for “A Soviet Mistake”, from the band’s upcoming album Welcome to the Land of Nothing. Check it out below.
Here’s some more background on the song from singer Dave Klym:
“Soviet Mistake is roughly based on recent true events. It tells a story of a Russian foreign agent (Maria Butina) that actually infiltrated the NRA. I thought well, she’s pretty and a gun nut so it probably wouldn’t have been too hard to do. It makes for perfect fodder for a Ramones style love song from the point of view of the loser who fell for her and let her in and would stupidly do anything for her. I picture a sad dude in his mother’s dark basement on his computer. Anyway she was caught, jailed and kicked out of the country… no more Chipotle for her! Suka!”
The Tracys will be dropping another single called “Blockhead” in March. Keep an eye out for that and stay tuned to Dying Scene for more info on their next album Welcome to the Land of Nothing.
