Boomkat Product Review:
They've recently released the nostalgia-laden instrumental album Seaside Rock, but with Living Thing Peter, Bjorn & John return with the 'proper' follow up to their album Writer's Block. Having scored themselves a bonafide, ubiquitous pop hit in the shape of 'Young Folks' the Swedish trio have put their whistling days behind them and embraced a different approach to songwriting, starting out with the off-kilter vocal basslines and handclap grooves of 'The Feeling' before launching into 'It Don't Move Me', perhaps the most convincing of all the album's single contenders. There's an embrace of brooding melody here that's lacking in the mischievous, sweary jaunt 'Lay It Down'. Elsewhere the album's first single release 'Nothing To Worry About' starts out sounding a bit like Justice's 'D.A.N.C.E.', recruiting a children's choir for the chorus before proceeding to heap on a tad more distortion than your average top 40 tune. There's a willful angularity to all the band's compositions here, and a renewed emphasis on the power of a good beat. You do however get the sense that they might just be doing everything in their power not to fall into the trap of repeating themselves and the end result is a less immediate pop record than they've previously delivered but one that packs a heftier punch.
