About Peter Björn and John

Influenced by bands such as The Stone Roses and Ride, Peter and Björn began playing music together during high school. Their first group disbanded after they moved to Stockholm, where they met John in 1999 to form indie pop band, Peter Björn and John.

They are best known for ‘Young Folks', the 2006 single off their third album, Writer's Block. Featuring Victoria Bergsman of The Concretes fame, the song was a top 40 hit in the UK singles chart. It was also named NME's second best track of 2006 while in Australia it was voted number 16 in the annual Triple J Hottest 100.

From their first gig, an unsuccessful performance on a boat in Stockholm, they have reached international acclaim when "Young Folks" won the Swedish Grammis Award for Best Video in 2007.
