Think About Things

Simultaneously jazzy and revolutionary, ‘Think About Things’ is a definitive earworm: a warm, cherishing slice of electropop, along with a smooth synth line, appealing chorus, as well as harmonious bass. Released by the Icelandic vocalist Daði Freyr Pétursson & his group — which consists of his sister, spouse, and companions — it was at first bound for the stages of the yearly Eurovision Song Contest, one of Europe's kitschiest along with extremely well-known TV traditions.

Nonetheless, after the yearly competition was abandoned for the first time around for its 65-year history, the track — the presumed favorite — took on a unique kind of energy as a viral hit, on account of an idiosyncratic quarantine dance contest set to the tune that spread quickly across social media. Composed for the artist’s newborn daughter, its widespread message of categorical love & tender interest hit the correct notes well past the fabulous Eurovision stage.
