Jens Lekman - What’s That Perfume That You Wear?

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

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

It also, not entirely coincidentally, breaks from the usual summer festival sausagefest template.
