When Apple is brave enough to label one of its products "the funnest iPod ever," they'd better back it up. And they do with Copenhagen's the Asteroids Galaxy Tour's 'Around the Bend.' Bouncy, dance-ready drums? Driving bass line? Horns? "Oooh yeahs"? A promise of "good, good times around the bend"? Okay, we'll play along with that.
"It's a song about sexual energy," Lars Iversen of AGT, who make their U.S. debut this Wednesday at New York City's Pianos, tells Spinner. "An energy that you want so bad from someone, and you'd do whatever it takes to get it." Ah, there's the fun.
Iversen, who says he and music partner Mette Lindberg complement each other like some sort of yin/yang, king/queen pair, is having visions and dreams of Apple products despite remaining schwag-free. "We attended our personal guru last week. He looked into his crystal ball and saw this great sight: Apples everywhere!" Iversen jokes. "He then told us that a big load of toys should arrive very soon from the big fruit company. Steve? Are you there?"
In the meantime, Iverson says the commercial -- which uses a new edit of the happy-pop song -- is "cool. Very simple and elegant. Not trying too hard."
And what about all those "selling out" accusations? "We don't see it that way. Even though Apple is this big, multi-national machine of a company, we still love their products ... We don't need to go into big fancy studios that we can't afford, because we have a Mac. No, we haven't been paid to say this. We honestly dig what they do."
