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.

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!
