Regardless genres, the love for Swedish music is spread all over the world. Hence it is quite gratifying to see how, in return for such appreciation, Sweden gives back an endless pipeline of talented artists. At the forefront of the current Swedish pop scene is duo Niki & The Dove
. They released their first album, Instinct
(2012), via Mercury/Sub Pop records in the US, and their single DJ, Ease My Mind
got into the UK charts, being remixed by the likes of Skrillex and Twin Shadow. On April 8th they will be releasing their second full length, Everybody's Heart Is Broken Now
(2016, Ten Music), which has been written, recorded, and produced between Gothenburg, Los Angles, and Toulouse. Due to the promo events that Sónar Festival
organizes in Scandinavia every year, Niki & The Dove presented their new album in Stockholm with a five-piece outfit on stage. After the show, we hung out together with Malin Dahlström and Gustaf Karlöf.
