This Secondhand Sunday goes out to The French Kicks. I’ve been craving new music by them lately. I once met the band in my college days when I interned at a pretty rad TV show. I compared scarves with the Stumpf boys that day. Here’s an oldie but a goodie, “So Far We Are.”I’ll let the video speak for itself. The will always be one of the coolest bands around. For sure.
It seems like it has been ages since we’ve heard from the Swedish trio Peter, Bjorn & John. Was ‘Young Folks’ really that long ago? Not really I guess. The band is due to release their new album ‘Living Thing’ on March 31st, and have just put out their new single for ‘Nothing to Worry About’. Oddly enough, they did this through Kanye West’s blog.
The thing about P, B & J is the fact that they always have that ‘catchy single’ with an unexpected beginning. Like the whistles of ‘Young Folks’, the new track starts off with children singing that follows the band throughout the choruses. The guys are sounding a little bit like the French Kicks to me when I hear this new track. I’m not sure if thats a good assumption, but the vocals feel like Stumpf and Company took over.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see if ‘Nothing to Worry About’ and the rest of the album picks up where the band left off.
