It seems like nowadays, all you have to be is from Australia, preferably claim Sydney or Melbourne as your residence and tune your instruments to the key of electro-pop meets rock to almost guarantee a quality number. There has been and still continues to be a thriving scene over that way: Cut Copy, Presets, Midnight Juggernauts, Muscles, etc. (’08 is already huge for these bands) But new on my radar is PNAU-who has had me want to break out the keyboards, find a horn player, program a few beats, hook up the slide-whistle; and then recruit a group of neighborhood kids to write a few simple verses with a hooky chorus, and just hope to construct a song even half as infectious as “Baby”.
I guess since we’re a day behind, that’s the reason I’ve yet to hear this song or even of this group, until recently. Simply, this child-like exuberance is missing from a lot of my music. Click the jump for a taste….
The video is almost half as fun as the song itself.
This shit just makes you smile: A live performance on a local morning show.
