Grooving, joyous and everything you need to crack a smile on a shitty winter’s day.

If we told you that we were working on a track based on perfumes and unbridled love, built on top of a beat that blends samba, calypso, steel drums and infectious pop in its prime - you might think we’ve lost the plot. Coming from the mind of Jens Lekman, it’s an altogether more bountiful proposition - the sort of life-affirming anthem that’ll get you bouncing across the room like a pogoing championing (if they even exist).

It’s taken a while, but ‘What’s The Perfume That You Wear’ is the perfect way for Jens to mark out his first album in 5 years. Taking that insatiable knack for pop melodies and the ability to immediately transport anyone to any point in their life with a brimming smile and sway of the shoulder, it’s the off-kilter love song of the year. When you’re cracking out lines like “It smells so good, like sandalwood” and recalling tales of stealing shampoo from hotels that you’ve visited together - then you know that you’re listening to the pure joys of love in the 21st century.

Grooving, joyous and everything you need to crack a smile on a shitty winter’s day - ‘What’s That Perfume That You Wear?‘ is the party-starter we all wanted to hear when Jens stormed back in the room. 2017 is already looking miles better because of it. Jamie Muir
