Alcazar, the Swedish disco-pop troupe responsible for turning me gay and forcing me to wear my ties like Richard Gere with “Crying at the Discotheque,” is back. For the last time. Maybe.
The group is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year with a brand new single and a farewell tour throughout Sweden before their alleged split – which, they’ve threatened in the past, so. Mmhmm.
The “Sexual Guarantee” troupe successfully endured two decades – member roster shake-ups be damned – and they’re capping it all off with a song called “In The Name Of Love,” which doubles as the theme song for Europride 2018 – and, originally, a Melodifestivalen submission.
It’s a bonafide homosexual robo-banger, full of fierce militant beats and lots of “oooh, baybee“-s and encouraging words: “L-O-V-E! In the name of love!”
It’s great, actually! And everyone knows that any song involving a L-O-V-E chant is objectively good. (Looking at you, Ashlee. And you too, Nicola.)
One might even say we gotta…fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love.
