Young Dreams! It has been some time since I listened to this group, hailing from the beautiful land of Norway, but here they are delivering the tropicalia pop that originally drew me to them. The live video for “First Days of Something” was filmed atop their studio in Norway. America does NOT look like THAT. Need my one way ticket to Scandinavia, like, yesterday. Young Dreams has a playfulness to their music that is very endearing to me and I think “First Days of Something” highlights this better than their prior releases. The Beach Boys perfected that playful quality and many have tried to figure it out since, and I’m not drawing any comparisons, but Young Dreams is definitely on to something.
Their album Between Place will be out in the US, March 5th on Modular People.
