Gimme Some Peter Bjorn and John 4/5 Pitchforks Label: Startime International Over the years, Swedish rock group Peter Bjorn and John have played with a variety of styles and sounds, but the group’s latest album “Gimme Some,” due out on March 29, is largely a return to what made them popular in the first place. Peter Moren, Bjorn Yttling and John Eriksson have been making music as Peter Bjorn and John, affectionately known by some fans as PB&J, since 1999 but are best known for their 2006 megahit “Young Folks.” The song, driven by an infectious whistled melody, has been used in a number of different kinds of media including video games, movie soundtracks, and commercials. Peter Bjorn and John’s last album, 2009 release “Living Things,” was a shift for the band as they moved away from their indie pop-rock style towards a more hip-hop, electronic sound.
