Frankly, these kids are just so cute — check out that adorable pixie cut on the female lead singer! The band's six members — 50 percent of whom are named Anders! — are all originally from Denmark, but they've since relocated to the UK, where their debut album, This is Alphabeat, just hit stores this week. The album's 10 tracks combine a dash of '80s kitsch, a pinch of Devo's danciness, and a whole lot of good, old-fashioned pop.

I've had this song in my head for a few weeks now, too. It's not the type of thing I'd listen to for everyday, but I have some of their songs on my workout playlist and it's so much fun!

Reminds me of ABBA. Not entirely my thing. Fun though!
