In the interim, the Denmark-based two-piece has been making a name for itself by touring the globe and along w...

Album Review: Miike Snow, Happy To You

Published in Album Reviews
Thursday, 19 April 2012 01:09
If Miike Snow’s eponymous debut is this relatively new band’s introduction to indie-friendly electro-pop music, then this sophomore offering by Stockholm-based trio is their gate to top-40 success. For some this is a revelation, but if you found comfort in the band’s mid-tempo beats, twinkling synths and easy-listening rendition of Scandinavian e...
