((Peter Bjorn and John)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Peter Bjorn and John

Peter, Bjorn and John are a Swedish trio comprised of, well, Peter, Bjorn and John. The three men play uptempo indie pop using keyboards, guitars, whistles and even some maracas. This is a band that makes you feel good when you put them on. If anything, they are even more dynamic and frantic live than their songs suggest.

There's a little bit of garage, maybe some shoegazing, and perhaps some punk in PB&J's hooks. But really there is pleasantry. Their "hit" song "Young Folks" (featuring Victoria Bergsman of The Concretes and on their latest album Writer's Block) was voted the #2 track of 2006 by NME, beaten out only by Hot Chip's "Over and Over." Hot Chip: you just made PB&J's list of things to do today.
