Album of the week: Niki And The Dove “Instinct”


Swedish band Niki And The Dove released their long awaited debut album “Instinct” last week. And it`s absolutely fascinating!

The band consists of singer Malin Dahlström and keyboarder Gustaf Karlöf, who did release a couple of songs and an EP before the album came out. “The Drummer” is one of their best known songs and set the expectations high for a great pop album.

The result is one of the best debut albums i`ve heard in years. Pure pop with Malin`s beautiful voice, which delights every pop music lover with her crystal clear voice. Perfect melodies, interesting sounds and great lyrics do the rest to make you fall in love with their record. You can hear how much work and love they put into this record and their influences by great pop records from the last 30 years from the likes of Kate Bush, Kylie or Goldfrapp.

If you know “The Drummer” already, please listen to the fantastic “Mother Protect”, “In Your Eyes”, “Love To The Test” and the stunner “DJ Ease My Mind”.

“Instinct” is a highlight of pop music in 2012 and if you like Oh Land, Bat For Lashes or Ladyhawke, you gonna love this album! The band is currently on tour  in the UK and will play some European festivals the next months.
