Fuck me. It’s sunny again. Let’s all go outside and get naked – you go first, I’ll follow. Honest. I love how certain songs just go hand-in-hand with the sun. Want an example (yes)? How about this juicy nugget, which is so summery you might as well douse it in Peri-Peri sauce and ‘throw it on the barbie’ (and if you didn’t just read that in your head in a stereotypical and atrociously racist Australian accent then SHAME ON YOU).

Palpitation are from Sweden and have that effortlessly breezy sound that seems to flow through all bands from the area (see The Radio Dept., Shout Out Louds, Jens Lekman). ‘We Don't Need To, We Don't Have To’ is a lovely little tune that skips along at a brisk pace; gentle strums lay a picnic blanket down for the lush giddy female vocals and warm midi trumpets. Just listening to this instantly brings to mind summery times, like groups of friends guffawing in the park, gathered around the remnants of a Tesco Sausage Roll snack pack. Or a severely sunburnt old overweight semi-naked man with figure-hugging shorts on Southend beach*. Head to their site now to download it for free – and grab a copy of the album ‘I’m Absent, You’re Far Away’, released this week.
