Peter Bjorn And John - Gimme Some

A contender for 2011’s best
Peter Bjorn And John - Gimme Some
Is it possible for something to be too much bloody fun? ‘Gimme Some’, sixth album from Swedish indie pop types Peter, Bjorn And John, is absolutely superb; sunshine and a hundred beach parties stuffed into thirty minutes, sprightly and joyous, cool, confident and glossy. Bass thrums through ‘Eyes’ and ‘I Know You Don’t Love Me’, an anthem of Joy Division-esque stature; ‘Second Chance’ is the song: you know, the song that everyone will fall in love with, the song of your summer. It may be a little hasty to admit this soon, but this is a contender for 2011’s best.

9/10
