Peter Bjorn and John - Young Folks
Peter Bjorn and John, "Young Folks"
Peter Bjorn and John, "Young Folks (Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve Re-animation mix)"
Peter Bjorn and John, "Young Folks (Tomas Andersson remake)"
Here's one of those amazing songs that seems to come out of nowhere, one that a friend tells you about and you can't stop listening to from the first moment. In this case, I owe it to DJ Never Forget, a.k.a. GB, a.k.a. the man behind Finger on the Pulse. He dropped it Friday on his weekly radio show and it was just like, "Hell yeah!" He gave credit to Philly's Dave P, who dropped this at Making Time a few months back (and ironically, I think I remember it from then). So thank those two music mavens for this.
Peter Bjorn and John are a Swedish trio who sorta came out of nowhere. They've got that indie sound that isn't afraid to make perfect pop fit for the dancefloor. On "Young Folks," the group is joined by Victoria Bergsman on vocals.
