16. Mr Little Jeans – Pocketknife

“Pocketknife” by Mr Little Jeans

Country: Norway
Release date: 25 March 2014
Label: Harvest Records

“I’m gonna rescue you
So you can rescue me too
Make it a rendezvous
I got my best dress on
And you’ve a smile and a bruise
So come and rescue me,
And me you”

In a modern world of music where styles and genres have started to blend beyond recognition it can sometimes be liberating to just listen to something that dares to be a simple traditional pop record. This is exactly the case here. Mr Little Jeans (who really is a miss, and not a mister) gives us a collection of really sweet indie pop songs that easily could have been made ten year ago. Which in this case is a good thing! The above lines are from opening track “Rescue Song” which is an absolute delight. “Pocketknife” is really filled with highlights, including a guest appearance by a children’s choir doing the backup vocals on “Oh Sailor” and a superb cover of Arcade Fire’s “Suburbs”.
