Drum roll, shakers… now put your lips together and whistle like this….

“Young Folks” is the first single off of the Swedish indie pop band, Peter, Bjorn & John’s third album Writer’s Block released in 2006 on Wichita Recordings. The duet has Peter Morén’s singing accompanied by Victoria Bergsman of The Concretes and Taken by Trees. Muted bass line (sounds like Björn Yttling shoved some toilet paper under the strings close to the bridge… or the digital equivalent) over a shuffle punctuated by the hands of John Eriksson on congas.

This upbeat number illustrates a new couple contemplating their relationship and the time they spend together. Sorta like this: If you really knew me… would you stick around? You say you will? Sweet! Now we don’t care about anybody but us. Let’s be into each other. Hooray!

I dare you to listen without whistling along.
