Like a whistling shadow over their career, any mention of Peter, Bjorn and John will probably inevitably bring the melody of Young Folks rattling into your head. That song was such a monolith, a monster hit that carved its way so deep into pop culture that Stereogum dedicated a whole article to its legacy when it turned ten last year. But there’s a lot more to them than just that song, including their new album Breaking Point, a collection of infectious pop songs released last year. You can see them bring that album to life onstage when they play at Södra Teatern in April. And yes, they probably will play Young Folks.
Peter, Bjorn And John, Kägelbanan, April 22
