Alt-rock legends Depeche Mode will headline KeyArena Monday night (Aug. 10). But I’m actually a little more excited about catching their opening act, Peter Bjorn and John. You know, the Swedish trio that came whistling out of nowhere with "Young Folks," a.k.a. the catchiest song of the decade, in 2006.

So I caught up with band member Peter Moren on the phone during his recent stop in New York. Check GO in the morning for my write-up. Meanwhile, here are a few interview clips I chopped up for you all. Here’s what Moren had to say about …

… the band’s beginnings and how close he came to being a librarian instead of a rock star.

… the evolution of their most popular song and apprehension about being a one-hit wonder.

… the new "Living Thing" album and making music with "trash."
