Niki And The Dove

Here’s another strong case as to why Sweden really holds the reigns when it comes to real pop music. Niki And The Dove are Malin Dahlström and Gustaf Karlöf. One produces and one sings. Together they create a brooding mixture of percussive pop music with electronic beats adding to the strong choruses that hook you in.

Even though Niki and The Dove sound similar brethren Lykki Li, their single “DJ, Ease My Mind” is just as deserving of the attention that Lykke Li’s new material has been receiving. It’s just as alluring and captivating. Malin Dahlström’s vocals sing to you on a personal level which expands the pounding production that Gustaf Karlöf has set in place. And times there’s a hush feeling running through the track ala M83.

What will set these two apart? Well, we will only find out in 2011. Lykke Li has a new album coming out. And I am sure Niki And The Dove will soon start to venture further than the reaches of their European home territory.
