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. They describe the new track as:
“Nothing to Worry About” 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. “Doing this thing, this type of thing,” they yelp. “Put a little money in this type of thing/ I got nothing to worry about.”
I’ve never been super crazy about the little kid chorus. Ever since Hard Knock Life came out, I just feel that the whole thing is sort of played. But hey, it has been a few years and maybe it’s time for them to try and bring it back. Frankly though, I don’t really think there is all too much hip hop about this track. 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. I actually really loved their last album, and the other songs on this album actually seem pretty decent already. I just have a hard time getting behind this track.
But check it out if you care to.
