Miike Snow – Miike Snow (2009)

10.25.2009

I just want to get two things out of the way; I think this band’s name and the cover art for this album are lame. Despite this, the debut from this Scandanavian pop group contains some mighty addicting ear candy. Not surprising, considering how 2/3rds of the group cut their teeth producing multi-platinum pop hits for megastars such as Britney Spears and Madonna. Yeah, these are the dudes who wrote ‘Toxic’.

Miike Snow take a slightly more grown-up, reserved approach with their new project, but you can definitely hear traces of their high-budget pop past. Lead single ‘Animal’ starts thigs with a light, Peter Gabriel influeced bounce. Cuts like ‘Black & Blue’ and ‘Cult Logic’ show the band’s ability to craft some absolutely deadly choruses that will stay lodged in your brain for awhile.

This is nothing too crazy, just some well-crafted, immaculate sounding pop music that can brighten up a cold, gray October.
