I’ll be honest, I had no idea who Niki and The Dove were until our (supertalentedevilgenius) graphic designer, Erik Loften, played me some of their tracks the other day. Needless to say all of us at BYT are super obsessed with these Swedes. A double-headed act, they make the kind of leftfield, intelligent pop music that has see them breakthrough in 2012. Lucky for you, because they’re going to be at U Street Music Hall tonight (with Gordon Voidwell & Lightwaves too) as part of an All Things Go showcase. Wicked!
Don’t sleep on it. Seriously.
This song was the start of niki & the dove, in a way. It’s a song that celebrates those moments on the dance floor when the dj plays “the” song that makes your blood rush and all the memories connected to that song comes back to you. It’s wonderful and it’s bitter and it’s euphoric and melancholic and you cherish every second of it.
