Miike Snow’s debut self titled album’s was a pleasant delight in 2009. It was a solid album that was so front loaded it wasn’t even funny. The first half of that album is filled with incredible pop song after incredible pop song. The first five songs of the album are filled with sweet hooks and delightful memories that most bands would kill for. I never got around to posting about these guys, but it’s not like I am adding anything. These guys got blogged and remixed to death in 2009. I guess it was better for me to let the dust settled so that you guys can enjoy Miike Snow for what they really are, fun pop songs. Two of the guys in the band are professional pop song writers who write songs for the likes of Madonna, Kylie Minouge, and Kelis. They even won a Grammy for Britney’s Toxic (guilty pleasure much?).
It was hard to choose two songs to post out of those first 5, but these should give you a good enough idea about what these dudes are all about.
