Upon researching, I found out that this group got their moniker from Peter Pan (you know, flying and eternal childhood and all that) and the thing is John From New York does reflects that. Its not a twee pop song or anything like that, but there’s this boundless uplifting quality that makes you feel like donning green and whizzing around.
The other weird thing about this track is that its quite complex and it feels like that it was pulled off in one afternoon, with the band members having a laugh in the process. Deceptively simple. I like that!
