Miike Snow: Miike Snow (Downtown)

Two-thirds of Miike Snow (a band not a solo artist) have already proven themselves valuable assets to the world of pop. Having co-written and produced Britney Spears’ hit “Toxic” in 2004, Pontus Winnberg and Kristian Carlsson joined forces with Andrew Wyatt to bring you the new self-titled Miike Snow album.

The band’s familiarity with the punk, electro, new rave, and the DJ scene comes through here as a comfortable blend of all of the above. Strong and driving dance beats combine with vocals that recall the effect of Phil Collins and the synthesized effects so popular in the electro sound. “A Song For No One”—possibly the catchiest tune—has the bounce and color of Peter Bjorn and John’s “Young Folks.” Miike Snow certainly delivers on the act’s pop potential.
