It’s hard to describe the style Peter, Bjorn, and John are going with for “Gimme Some” which is their 6th studio album. The Swedish threesome have always done a great job at balancing the line between Indie/Alternative and Pop/Rock. “Gimme Some” does this so very well. Tracks like “Dig a little deeper” sound very Vampire Weekend-ish and will have you moving your head while their first single “Second Chance” reminds us all why we love PB&J.
Some of my favorite tracks include “Breaker Breaker”, “May Seem Macabre”, and “Tomorrow Has To Wait.” This is a great album filled with unruffled melodies and remarkable backbeats. I love the poignant vocals. PB&J are the best at making us love rock and are able to blur the boundaries between worldly music.
It’s a great album and I highly recommend it if you want to have a great time. It’s a great reminder why we love music so much. – JC
