Peter Bjorn And John
Released: 30th March 2009.
Famed for their astonishing whistling ability in "Young Folks", Swedish band Peter Bjorn and John return with one of the catchiest songs of 2009 so far. Making a lovely use of some child vocals in the same way Justice did in "D.A.N.C.E", the track is filled with big beats, smooth vocals and a memorable melody bound to stay in your head all day. Although it's hard to pigeonhole as a specific genre, that doesn't matter, if the support from Radio One recently is anything to go by, this song will be huge.
Though they're probably forever set to be remembered as "that lot who did the song with the whistling" (2007's top 20 hit "Young Folks"), it doesn't seem to make Swede trio Peter, Bjorn and John any different. In fact, they're still carrying on apace with their kooky, crazy brand of acoustic pop that they are actually rather good at on this, their new single. It may even be one you hear the postman whistling in due course.
