We're not usually ones to get excited about a single release - we've usually more fanciful fish to focus our attentions on - but Swedish outfit Peter, Bjorn and John's 'Young Folks' might just be the most brilliant, immediate-classic seven-inch (and CD!) released this summer.
'Young Folks' is released on the aforementioned formats on August 7 through Wichita, and can be pre-ordered right now here. A remix 12" will also be available.
Why the excitement, though? Well, it's rare that each office-based DiSser agrees on a song's excellence, but this beam of purest aural sunshine ticks all our boxes. Featuring Victoria Bergsman, formerly of The Concretes, 'Young Folks' is memorable dream-pop, replete with skittery drums and lyrics entirely concerned with the universally appealing theme of the here and now - forget tomorrow, 'cause you're here with me, now... et cetera. Plus, it features a whistled melody that the milkman will be repeating 'til the first snow falls upon Britain's green and pleasant lands.
Signed copies of Peter, Bjorn and John's Writer's Block LP are available to pre-order here. We suggest you get the single, then the album, and join us in whistling 'til our lips crust over and splinter apart.
