Peter Bjorn And John: "Young Folks"

Until today I had never heard of Stockholm, Sweden's Peter Bjorn and John (PBJ HAH!) which seems to me to be quite the shame because if this song is any indication, then they are way too good for me to have just now heard about. Their new album Writer's Block was released on May 24th in Scandinavia and has already been praised by a number of publications, all Swedish, however. This has a good chance of quite possiblity becoming one of my favorite songs of the year, everything is just right on, not a bad spot in all four minutes and thirty seconds of it.

[MP3]: Peter Bjorn And John :: Young Folks (Highest Recommendation!!!)
This song starts off with surging, funky drums, addictive maraca shaking, crazy bongos and a pleasantly lo-fi bass-line; all this wrapped up in a whistling melody that you'll be humming or, um, whistling for the rest of the Summer. This song features Victoria Bergsman of The Concretes in a guest vocal duet with Peter singing about that first period in brand new relationship when you are nervous and dazed, and unsure about every move you make: "If I told you things I did before,told you how I used to be, would you go along with someone like me?" How cute!

You can buy Writer's Block and the "Young Folks" single from a number of Swedish online stores or you can just buy it from iTunes and get some sweet tracks locked up tighter than Fort Knox.

StumbleUpon Toolbar Stumble It!

You think "Young Folks" is good, just you wait till you hear the Beyond The Wizards Sleeve rework. Erol Alkan's a genius: dancefloor meltdown guarenteed.

*hugs* This was just what I needed- quite literally. I had been looking for an MP3 version of this song online, since my friend recommended it to me, and came across your site(you probably just saved me hours of time right there!). Thank you! I plan on getting the album now(just wanted to see what their songs were like, exactly what your site is doing).

The whistling in this song was originally meant to be a "stand in" for another instrument during the recording--they liked it just as it is and kept the whistling. I do love it!
