America, in a new video from the Danish electro-pop band Liima, is anything but the promised land. Broken down appliances litter muddy yards; rusted cars lumber past depressed strip malls and boarded up houses; the youth pass their time taking selfies, dining on junk food, sleeping in or just staring blankly into the middle distance.
"The water makes you sick, America," sings frontman Rasmus Stolberg. "I'm hoping now, you're hoping now, we're hoping now. I'm hoping for America."
