About Niki and the Dove:
This band comes from Stockholm, Sweden with two members, Malin Dahlstrøm and Gustaf Karløf. Malin and Gustaf have been writing together since 2010, figuring out just how pop music works and then discovering new ways to break it.
Their first single "DJ, Ease My Mind" was released on the leading UK independent Moshi Moshi. The track was one of the most striking debuts of the year, catching the attention of everyone from Artrocker and NME through to The Sunday Times who declared the single could "be the two greatest alt-pop songs of 2010."
Niki and The Dove's songs are full of magic and light but with an unsettling darkness hidden beneath the surface. It's pop music but a world away from the production line aesthetics of much modern chart music.
About Wolf Gang:
Wolf Gang's sound packs in an abundance of suave panache, ear-thwacking beats and heart-throttling melodies. Inspired by the likes of Talking Heads, Roxy Music and Arcade Fire, McElligott and his crack combo have quickly cultivated a dedicated and avid fan base through two years of nearly non-stop live performances. These performances include headlining tours, support slots with Florence + The Machine, The Killers, Miike Snow, Metric, and The Naked And Famous, countless festival appearances (including SXSW and Coachella), as well as topping the bill on the influential 2011 NME Radar Tour.
