Biography

Miike Snow is – are – in a playful mood. The second, somewhat orchatronic, album by the three-headed-band with the one-man-name and mysterious Jackalope symbol is called Happy To You. Why?

“It’s a sign in the studio,” shrugs tattooed Swedish producer Christian Karlsson. “An old mis-spelt phrase postcard from Thailand. Nothing to do with any of the ... Read more in Amazon's Miike Snow Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Miike Snow - S/T 8/10 June 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Maybe they've been putting something in the water these past few decades, but it seems like ever since ABBA took over the world in the `70s Sweden has been a hotbed of wildly addictive pop music, no more so than in this new millennium. From the Cardigans, Robyn, and the Concretes, to Peter Bjorn & John, the Hives, the Shout Out Louds and now production "supergroup" Miike Snow, Sweden's been assaulting the rest of the world's charts in their own charming way for years. A little late to the coming-out party but still retaining all the trademarks of Swedish indie pop, Miike Snow combines the songwriting and production talents of Bloodshy & Avant (Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg) with American producer and lead singer Andrew Wyatt. With such an impressive hit-making resumé behind them, it should come as little surprise that Miike Snow is the kind of brain-imprinting electro that gets in your head and refuses to go away.

Given Bloodshy & Avant's history, working with acts like Britney Spears, Madonna, and Kylie Minogue, the slick beats and sparkling production are par for the course - rather, it's when the duo turn their talents in the direction of elegantly simple indie ditties that Miike Snow reveals itself as more of a legitimate musical experimentation rather than a producers' vanity project. Single "Animal" sounds like a mix between Vampire Weekend's staccato synths and MGMT's layered electronica, bouncing along a deceptively catchy progression to a jangly chorus that hits immediate pop pay dirt. Wyatt's chameleonic vocals are a highlight from the beginning, imbuing lyrics like "but I'm still trying to make my mind up, am I free or am I tied up?" with unassuming cheeriness.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best for 2009 June 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Whoa. I picked up the first song "Animal" on the KEXP Song of the Day podcast and knew I had to have this CD RIGHT NOW. This is the best I've picked up for some time. This whole playlist is easy on your ears and I haven't been able to be still for hours. Load this into your MP3 and drift away. Awesome for walking or workout. Animal, Black and Blue, Sans Soleil, A Horse is Not a Home, Faker... What a great set of songs... I believe this is a Swedish trio. Irregardless, this is the best of 2009. It'll take you way high.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talented New ARTIST a good buy December 18, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Miike Snow, a Swedish band that formed in 2007 has a solid album here. First let me tell you that if you are a fan of 80's progressive: Depeche Mode, New Order, Peter Gabriel this would be a strong buy. Although they borrow from the past this album has a fresh sound with really crisp vocals and very good instrumentation. One of the few newer albums I've heard that has very little guitar. Andrew Wyatt does a good job disguising his vocals from song to song; so as not to sound repetitive. Although heavily laden with effects, Andrew is a true vocalist and that is the one distinguishable thing that separates Miike Snow from other indie/electro/syth/pop outfits. From the first to last song the production is excellent. Karlsson and Winnberg give you this, and the sonic arsenal of beats and colors that guide the albums vibe. Animal is their single and it is a toe tapping hit with a fresh upbeat groove. If Passion Pit and Vampire Weekend strike your fancy don't hesitate to buy this album. Miike Snow has remixed both artists. I look forward to their sophomore release and the 2010 US tour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Solid Record December 5, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is a very solid record. It has great replay value and strong fast beats great for working out to. There are about 4 stellar songs on this album, while all the rest are very good. It is certainly worth the 5.99 to buy electronically. 'Animal' 'A Horse is not a Home' 'Plastic Jungle' and 'In Search Of' are all standout tracks.

Buy: If you like creative beats and synth-heavy melodic techno pop with interesting memorable lyrics, and amazing hooks.

Don't buy: No reason not to buy, unless you shun all things electronica, in which case, you might want to try being a little less square.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dazzling Snow ride... November 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
As Bloodshy and Avant, Swedish producers Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg have worked with acts like Madonna, Kylie, and Britney ("Toxic"). As Miike Snow, they team with singer/songwriter Andrew Wyatt to produce sublime Indie Electro-pop much removed from their work as producers, and more comparable to the sound of The Whitest Boy Alive, or a spare Röyksopp.

Opening cut "Animal" is a lightly bouncy Reggae-tinged song. "Don't forget to cry at your own burial" you'll find yourself singing along on the floaty "Burial", adding some black to the dazzling white hue. "Song for no one" is more upbeat with a really catchy keyboard riff and semi whispered vocals from Wyatt, one of my favourites. "Black and blue" is a slice of guitar/piano garnished quivery Pop, while the dreamy "Sans soleil" (with reverbing guitars, killer harmonies, and a lulling seaside feel) and the icy sounding piano song "Faker" (with Beatles-style harmonies) are the closest things to ballads.

This is an album of standouts, from the woozy "Sylvia" (with skittery beats), the pulsing/chiming "A horse is not a home" (clever title), "Cult logic" (with Techno flourishes), the stomping buzz-filled glam Rock "Plastic jungle", to the floaty "In search of" (with electronic swishes and glitches adding to the drama).

Ambitious, dark, and fun!

Sylvia... Listen to it!
I first took note of Miike Snow through killer, dance remixes of Animal, but there is much more going on here.
