Stream: Niki and the Dove’s “The Fox” 12-inch

June 13, 2011



Niki and the Dove’s much-anticipated Sub Pop debut 12-inch is finally out tomorrow. The record features "The Fox," one of the group's most aggressive approaches to textured pop to date, interspersing singer Malin Dahlström's powerful voice with the sounds of broken glass and an avalanche. "Gentle Roar," whose Mylo remix we featured already, sees Dahlström deftly maneuver from an over-the-shoulder whisper to a chorus of her screaming self. The live version of "Somebody" lacks the emotional precision of the group's other tracks, but its instantly haunting hook—for like the tenth time with Niki and the Dove—only promises greater things to come.
