MP3: First Rate People ‘You Won’t Get This Joke at All’

First Rate People, First Rate People MP3, You Won't Get This Joke at All, SoundCloud, OntarioOntario‘s First Rate People recently debuted a new single from its premier album to be released this year. The band takes influences from electronic, pop and R&B, and “You Won’t Get This Joke at All” is a special example of what can happen when these elements are mixed. The single starts with instrumentals that call to mind Passion Pit, but soon enough the song strips down to the basics — a guitar and pretty, sweet female vocals saying “I won’t rest till it’s over, I won’t call till you heard it all / And while some cities get this, you won’t get this joke at all.” The track continues on, switching back and forth between male and female vocals, and intricate and light instrumentals. The result  is a refreshingly different sound.

First Rate People toured the U.S. and Canada in 2011 in support of Born Ruffians. With encouragement from notable acts in their industry, including Jens Lekman, The National‘s Matt Berninger and Chad Valley, the group spent 2012 putting together their debut, which was mastered by Milan Schramek at Lacquer Channel in Toronto. The album displays the confidence and maturity of the young band and “makes you laugh, think and move at the same time.”
