SONGS 2 PEEP: Niki & the Dove – ‘Gentle Roar’ (Mylo Remix) x ‘The Fox’
by Yvette Travillian
Niki & the Dove are a Swedish outfit who were recently signed to Seattle’s Sub Pop label (home to Nirvana). Technically there is no ‘Niki’ and (sadly) there is no actual ‘Dove’ in the band, but there is however, singer Malin Dahlström,who’s unique/hushed child-like vocals are adorably addictive paired alongside musician Gustaf Karlöf.
The buzz is getting increasingly loud for this duo and with the two new tracks that recently surfaced – I understand why. “Gentle Roar (Mylo Remix)” is the group’s first b-side at Sub Pop and “The Fox” is the official first single. Both songs are awesome in their own unique/odd way and deserving of a peep. Look for Niki & the Dove’s EP, also titled, The Fox to drop June 14.
