The All-American Rejects - Swing Swing (Dreamworks)
UK release date: 21 July 2003
These small-town American, fun rockers are hard to dislike. Swing Swing swings along pleasantly enough, developing from an organ intro to a good-natured, old-style rock out that does just what you expect it to. Rock, that is.
This on-top-form track has the same innate positivity that brought The New Radicals instant fame with You Only Get What You Give. It would be a shame if they split up as quickly.
Hailing from Stillwater, Oklahoma, this duo self-released their eponymous debut album last October, but it was quickly picked up by the major label who bring us this single. Expect to hear a lot more from them.
