Laibach - The Whistleblowers

I have never been into Slovenian industrial group Laibach, but stumbled across their new song "The Whistleblowers" inspired by people like Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden and really liked it. It's a grandiose and pompous-sounding song with both feet firmly set in an Eastern European musical tradition, and actually kind of catchy. It's not that often you get whistling in pop songs these days either, so that's both a novel and a welcome experience. The track is taken from the band's forthcoming album Spectre, and the video was made by Norwegian director Morten Traavik, who according to the band is a "Laibach-kinda person".

Watch and listen
