PETER BJORN & JOHN
Australian Tour February / March 2007
More punk than The Concretes, less frantic than Shout Out Louds, & as catchy as the most tuneful of the UK post-post-post-punk merchants, Sweden’s Peter Bjorn & John write songs that burst with imagination & heart-on-sleeve emotion.
Propelled by the wonderful, anthemic “Young Folks” single, a song that has single handedly, & artfully, brought whistling, maraccas & bongos back to modern music, Peter Bjorn & John’s third album, Writer’s Block , which also features the heavily rotated “Let’s Call It Off”, is garnering plenty of accolades as one of the best albums of 2006, marking them as a group that has now arrived in every sense of the word.
Choosing their band name, not due to a lack of better names, but because it just felt right, Peter Bjorn & John are now feeling right about coming to our shores to play what will be some super fun gigs to their growing legion of Australian fans. Catch Peter Bjorn & John when they tour Australia for the first time in February & March 2007.
