Peter, Bjorn And John is a partnership born in trust and friendship.
Three Swedish musicians who have scaled supreme heights together, the group toast their 20th anniversary in 2020.
New album 'Endless Dream' continues their current creative streak, and it's set to land on March 13th.
A full Stateside tour has been confirmed, and it's all led by deft, infectious new single 'On The Brink'.
Pop classicists, the group seem able to tease out gorgeous melodies while inserting elements of melancholia into every facet.
Out now, Peter, Bjorn And John have shot a simple affecting video, one that presents the group as tent-bound scout leaders.
"I used to be a scout as a kid," explains Peter. "I was a very unpractical kid though and still am. Hopefully I was a decent friend which is part of the scout honour. I never nurtured any dreams of becoming a scout leader but still felt quite comfortable when Henry the director assigned me the role for this group of new videos where different stories intertwine in the 'great indoors' built up in a warehouse."
He continues: "If there is a song on the 'Endless Dream' album that suits marching and campfire singing it's definitively 'On The Brink'. So how fitting that this is the video where me and my little group of scouts are the main focus. It's a condensed fantasy day where I lead them out on an excursion and back to the camp site for a simple hot dog supper. Lovely stuff!"
"Thanks to the kids for being such great sports not least the little drummer boy! The title and spirit of the song, the artwork of the upcoming album and these small vignettes and adventures in the videos all correlate perfectly I have to say. Sometimes you luck out don’t you! You almost think we had some sort of conceptual notion..."
A clip shot through with engaging innocence, you can check out 'On The Brink' below.
Peter, Bjorn And John will release their new album 'Endless Dream' on March 13th.
