STOCKHOLM (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Indie rockers Peter Bjorn & John have hit the big time, but they still haven't quit their day jobs.
According to an article in the New York Post times are still tough for the band, despite rising to public awareness following their hit "Young Folks" which was named #5 of the top 100 tracks of 2006 by Indie music blog Pitchfork Media.
According to the Post, Morén earns extra cash between tours by putting in time at a Stockholm book shop. "We’re not rich, but we can pay rent." Morén told the paper.
The trio have recently signed to a U.S. label, Almost Gold Recordings who handled the release of their 2nd disk, "Writers Block" which came out last March. Since then, the band has garnered quite a few favorable nods, including the aforementioned Pitchfork Media as well as some licensing deals, one on popular medical show "Greys Anatomy" and the sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" along with commercial spots for AT&T and Napster. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
