Peter, Bjorn and John, one of the biggest indie darling groups around has apparently tossed in a brief “hip hop” track on their latest album.
Rolling Stone is all over it.Â They describe the new track as:
â€œNothing to Worry Aboutâ€ layers a heavy boom-bap, some funked-up bass licks and electro hand-claps with a crew of children turning out some Bollywood-esque chanting on the chorus. â€œDoing this thing, this type of thing,â€ they yelp. â€œPut a little money in this type of thing/ I got nothing to worry about.â€
I’ve never been super crazy about the little kid chorus.Â Ever since Hard Knock Life came out, I just feel that the whole thing is sort of played.Â But hey, it has been a few years and maybe it’s time for them to try and bring it back.Â Frankly though, I don’t really think there is all too much hip hop about this track.Â It seems more Gwen Stefani than anything else, especially with the unnecessary handclaps.
That being said, I don’t want to hate on these kids.Â I actually really loved their last album, and the other songs on this album actually seem pretty decent already.Â I just have a hard time getting behind this track.
But check it out if you care to.
