Swedish rockers Peter Bjorn and John have been proselytizing their pro-60s pop prowess since 1999. The trio really took the indie world by storm back in 2006 with their dance-floor hit "Young Folks," and ten years later, they're still artfully writing their whistle-catchy songs like the title track to their new album, Breakin' Point. Live in-studio at KEXP, Peter Bjorn and John hammer out four bright, upbeat songs and between, chat gregariously with DJ Cheryl Waters about a "secret society of Swedish pop" and the four years of trials and tribulations in making it to Breakin' Point. Watch the session now:
