Malin Dahlström is slowly becoming my new pop idol. Any chick who can so confidently sing about ‘getting married in a backseat’; then finish it up with “I swear I love you, yeah I love you like it’s no tomorrow/and I got no time for second thoughts now/we got tonight and then I have to go” – with such sweet but edgy innocence – is cool in my book yo.
She and her partner in beats, Gustaf Karlöf, have finally re-emerged back into headphones with “Last Night”, an 80’s inspired track drenched (but not pressed) with the perfect amount of eerie – synth, that drives my eardrums banana’s. After releasing their more than impressive The Fox EP this past June, it’s good to see the Swedish duo return with such a fierce bang (peep Malin’s background vocals).
Look for Niki & The Dove’s next EP, The Drummer to drop sometime early Fall.
