Bringing a level of wit and self-deprecating pizazz that I can’t help but find infectious, Danish quartet The Jürgen Clubs‘ third single is… about the soft member of lead singer Magnus Grilstad. As he puts it:
“The song is based on an evening when I wasn’t too proud of myself, and in the attempt to get a second chance, I invited her out to a restaurant while she’s on her way out the door. Of course she turned down that invitation a few days later. (Prior to the date, Magnus had skipped all of the day’s meals to avoid getting bloated, resulting in the alcohol suddenly hitting harder than expected).”
With this in mind, it’s easy to appreciate not only the underlying theme but also the non-stop party vibe the band brings musically. With the bass and keyboard trading the spotlight multiple times, it brings a fun back-and-forth that wouldn’t feel amiss on any summertime party mix. Anyone who enjoys having fun with their music, especially Wet Leg (catchy and punny) or Fitz and the Tantrums (catchy and danceable), will dig this one.
Definitely keep your eyes peeled for more from The Jürgen Clubs, truly fun new music isn’t always a given these days. Plus who doesn’t like saying they first heard about a band on a blog? That’s free street cred my friends!
You can find this and their two other singles on their Sound Cloud or Spotify.
