Like a parallel universe Vampire Weekend hailing from the wilds of Denmark rather than the ivy-and-brownstone environs of the Upper West Side, Age of Giants waltz onto the scene with a sunny disposition about them that immediately brings to mind the prim-and-proper pop of VW's eponymous debut album. It stands to reason that time drifts by a little slower in rural Denmark than it does in the Big Apple, and you can feel it in these tracks, replete with laid back melodies, playful keys and breezy pop choruses. "Dreamy Nights" is our track of choice from the up-and-coming Danes' early offerings, an ethereal slice of carefree warm-weather pop music that will no doubt get heads turning beyond Scandinavian shores as the band look to put themselves on the indie map in the months to come.
