Record Bar

From the promoter: Miike Snow is Miike Snow’s eponymous debut album. It was recorded in Stockholm and released early on May 12, 2009, by Downtown Records. A single for the track Animal was released February 17, 2009. Upon a UK release of the song later in the same year, the track charted in the UK Singles chart at #98. The second single is called "Black & Blue". Both singles have made the BBC Radio 1 Playlist B-List. The Guardian spoke highly of the band, saying Miike Snow’s "coolly emotional pop suggests a-ha meets Animal Collective"[2]. ’In a recent interview with ClashMusic.com[3], lead singer Andrew Wyatt revealed their unexpected popularity, "I don’t think our project was that thought out when we started. We just wanted to make music together. Three people just messing about. I don’t think we anticipated the level of attention that it’s getting right now. We didn’t even think about touring when we started the album." The first track "Animal" was played in an episode of the American TV-series Gossip Girl during the fall of 2009. The songs Burial, Silvia, and Animal have also been played on MTV’s The Buried Life.
