JTR were a rumble of thunder from down under at Melodifestivalen 2015 and “Building It Up” advanced direkt til final alongside eventual Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw. Between a hectic summer tour schedule the brothers – John, Tom and Robin – have hit the studio and put together their follow-up single “Centre of Everywhere”. 

And it’s hella good. First off JTR nailed the scenic backdrop for the clip, which is set among snowcapped mountains and mystical forests. It makes the whole thing feel magical even before the song starts.

Whereas “Building It Up” sprung into action almost immediately — it’s called attack, people — this opens with greater restraint. The electro guitar riffs build through a sunny first verse,  helmed by Tom, who dreams of a long-distance love and the desire to break free.

The tight harmonies through the chorus give “Centre of Everywhere” real power and JTR prove that they are about more than just boyband pop. Robin’s second verse is full of pretty lyrics sure to set fangirl hearts aflame and builds on a tremendous sweep. It’s also goofy: “You’re sweating in your bums, but it’s okay cause so am.” Although played straight, you can tell that one of the boys is winking into the camera somewhere.

It all comes together through the bridge, led by John, and leaves you wanting to press repeat.

Equal parts guitar pop and electro, this is one of the strongest follow-ups from the Melfest class of ’15. It’s rare for a follow-up to surpass the Melfest release….but JTR have done it!

Score: 5/5

JTR “Centre of Everywhere” Lyrics

Looking out the window,
Hear the sounds of the phone,
And I wonder how the stars
look from where you are.

From the middle of the night,
We’re the only ones awake,
So tired of this town, Wanna get away.

So tell me what you’re dreamin’ of
And you say,
We could run,
We could run out,
To the middle of nowhere,
The centre of everywhere
And we don’t care,
We could run,
We can run out,
To the middle of nowhere,
The centre of everywhere.

In the middle of nowhere,
Somewhere with you,
In the middle of nowhere,
Somewhere with you

No-one else would understand,
what it feels to be a ghost,
when it’s flying through your hands,
I will make you whole.

You’re sweating in your bums,
It’s okay cause so am I,
don’t be nervous if you fall,
I will grab the sky.

So tell me what you’re dreamin’ of
And you say,
We could run,
We could run out,
To the middle of nowhere,
The centre of everywhere.
And we don’t care,
We could run,
We can run out,
To the middle of nowhere,
The centre of everywhere.
In the middle of nowhere,
Somewhere with you,
In the middle of nowhere,
Somewhere with you.

Cross my heart hope to die,
Cut my wings, butterfly,
We will fly
Nail our feet to the ground,
But they can’t hold us down (hold us down)

And you say,
We could run,
We could run out,
To the middle of nowhere,
The centre of everywhere.

And we don’t care,
We could run,
We can run out,
To the middle of nowhere,
The centre of everywhere.

In the middle of nowhere,
Somewhere with you,
In the middle of nowhere,
Somewhere with you

This is a great song! I’m glad they been able to take the Swedish route for their pop career. As much as I admire the Australian music industry, having JTR team up with Trinity Music is pop magic.

Being *Centre of Everywhere* would suck 4 me..
Prefer more being outcast and out of sight of nowhere..
Do not like so much to be the centre of attention especially all the time..

It must be really hell for them to have the paparazzi always following them like creeps & being in the tabloids always..
Oh I feel for them… 😛 😛

Oh…So from the 8 (now its one more i guess.. 😛 ) comments here 7 of them are mine except one.. I mean how dare Gavin posting his comment here..? 😛 hehe.. 🙂 Well its not really like other users post anything… I have seen others mainly commenting only on certain kind of wiwi articles & that is kinda unfortunate.. Mostly you will see an article having too many comments or few/none comments at all… I do my best so to cover all wiwi articles even the ones that are ‘dead’ or about not popular acts.. Its really my policy/tactic… Read more »

The last time that a boy band won in our Vision was in 2001 that Estonia surprisingly stormed all the way through victory in Copenhagen..
The host of next year’s Vision Sweden had a boy band winning the Vision & that was Herreys of course that they won in 1984 in the 29th Vision..

So i imagine now what are the odds of this boy band that will gonna possibly win next on Vision to be even JTR..?? 😛 😛 Well dreams never hurt anyone.. hehe 😉

Well from this boy band only one is really hottie…The one guy on the right…The other two are not really good looking…But ok…If you are horny & possibly drunk too then all these are f***able to you.. 😛 Ok they are not like hideous or really plain ugly..
And yeah i think that they are either bisexuals or gay i guess..

(ok one more comment if u don’t mind) I saw the headline : not just another boy band… Let me argue with that…Every boyband believes just the same for themselfs.. The boy bands that really stand out & make the difference are truly not many.. These 3 dudes have to feel so lucky & privileged that they were born & were raised in Sweden & Australia that are top developed progressive countries so they could do everything they dreamed of.. And its so unfair that most of us do not live in such countries instead.. I’m jealous & its fair… Read more »

Really bad that they managed to qualify DIRECTLY(!) to the final! I really had thought that they would not pass even to andra chansen alone..
How lame that other better acts than JTR like Midnight Boy & Caroline with pretty cool songs were eliminated on the same SF..
Even Dinah Nah with her amazing song finished behind them on the semi..
I guess that : sh*t happens all the time in life..

Oh these ”lovely” boys again..
I disliked them heavily in Melodifestivalen..
I felt such negativity about them…Like ewww..
Anyway…Do not expect me to become now fan of them though..
