I recently came across the Swedish band Miike Snow, and I’m hooked.
They started in 2007 and consist of 3 dudes: Andrew Wyatt, Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg. Their debut album was released in May last year. Their sound is very interesting… My fave song, Animal, has a fun, folky, indie sorta sound, but then other songs on the album remind me of bands like Anathallo, Owl City, Ok Go.. and a few other bands that I can’t quite put my finger on. I think it’s a good mix. There’s also a bit of electro and funk kinda vibes going on in some songs… Have a listen on their MySpace page.
My fave tracks are Animal, Cult Logic, Burial, A Horse Is Not A Home (how awesome is that song title!) and In Search Of.
