Over the years great pop records have three things in common; you can dance to them, sing along to them and you can of course, whistle the tune if it’s a corker.
This summers ditty is supplied by a Swedish 3-piece Peter Bjorn and John whose previous 2 albums have slipped under the radar here at Crossfire but i’m sure we will not be missing their third ‘Writer’s Block’.
This tune is the lead single lifted from this album and was released on August 7th through the wonderful Wichita Recordings label, home to Giant Drag, The Drips, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah to mention a few.
With it’s infectious whistling melodies and lush vocal lines, ‘Young Folks‘ could well be one of the tunes that in many a year to come could remind you of the summer of 2006. If this magnificently innocent single is to set the standard for the long player, it should be a must have in your collection. Let’s just hope that the trio did not actually have ‘Writer’s Block’ after they wrote this little gem.
