Young Folks

Song: Young Folks
Artist: Peter, Bjorn & John
Album: Writer's Block

If there is one thing the Swedish know how to do, it’s Pop music. When they do pop it’s as bouncy and catchy as you can get. (See ABBA’s career) But even when they do punk it’s a little pop (The Hives.) When they do glam it’s a little pop (The Ark.) And when it comes to the indie rock of Peter Bjorn & John, once again… pop!

“Writer’s Block” is their third album, released last year in Europe and just recently here, it’s a tight, almost singer-songwriter album with a super pop sheen. I love it, and am really digging their first single “Young Folks.”
