Miike Snow - Miike Snow
Represented visually by the mythical jackalope and scarce pics of three masked figures floating around on the internet, anyone would think Miike Snow didn’t want people to know who they are. Weird, considering this brilliant debut effort that is packed to bursting with infectious melodies and driven by a sumptuous mix of pounded pianos, thumping rhythms, luscious harmonies and shimmering electronics.
Of course two of the band are better known as Bloodshy & Avant – the Grammy winning outfit behind Britney’s ‘Toxic’ – which in some indie schmindie circles may be considered shameful, but certainly not round these parts. Oh no, Miike Snow is definitely worth shouting about.
