Swedish-pop band, Miike Snow is scheduled to perform at Headliners in Louisville Tomorrow. (Tickets are still available from Headliners website.)
I first heard of the band when their single “Animal” dominated indie and college radio stations in 2009 spurring a slew of remixes and the self-titled debut album became one our favorite albums of 2009.
Miike snow is back this time around with a full length album iii. This is the bands third (get it?) album since the band formed in 2007.
If you’ve been paying attention you may have caught the Run The Jewels Remix of “Heart is Full,” (Spotify link) which comes along in the form of a bonus song on the album. It’s a great juxtaposition highlighting the precise vocals of the Miike Snow as well as the viscous lyricism of Run The Jewels.
The band has taken on a massive North American tour schedule. You can’t help but admire the three Swedes who are still have more than 35 dates remaining including stops at festivals Lollapalooza (Chicago), Boston Calling Music Festival, Governor’s Ball (New York), Divide Music Festival (Colorado), Belly Up Aspen, Outside Lands (San Francisco) and ending the massive schedule with an performances at Austin City Limits in Austin, Texas.
Stay tuned, we may be broadcasting live from the concert tomorrow.
