THE TIME.COM REVIEW
“At once funky and futuristic, “Think About Things” is the ultimate earworm. A warm, loving slice of electropop, with a slinky synth line, catchy chorus and groovy bass. Released by the Icelandic singer Daði Freyr Pétursson and his group—which consists of his sister, wife and friends—it was initially destined for the stages of the annual Eurovision Song Contest, one of Europe’s kitschiest and most popular TV traditions.
But after the annual competition was cancelled for the first time in its 65-year history, the song—the supposed front-runner—took on a life of its own as a viral hit. Thanks to a quirky quarantine dance challenge set to the song that spread rapidly across social media. Written for the artist’s infant daughter. Its universal message of unconditional love and tender curiosity hits the right notes well beyond the glitzy Eurovision stage.”
