Niki and the Dove Announce “The Drummer” EP Out Oct 18


Niki and The Dove is a duo from Stockholm, Sweden made up of Malin Dahlström and Gustaf Karlöf. Their songs are full of magic and light but with an unsettling darkness hidden beneath the surface. Since getting together in February 2010, Malin and Gustaf have been busy writing together, figuring out just how pop music works and then discovering new ways to break it. The Swedish duo released The Fox EP earlier this year and are now set to release a digital-only EP on Oct 18 entitled The Drummer, which, according to the band and NME, “tells a story about a wrestle at night”.

They explain:
The Drummer tells a story about a wrestle at night, in a no mans land, where everything is uncertain. It’s about the inevitable question of if you’re choosing the right direction in your life or not.”

The band will be heading to the states to open 3 SOLD OUT shows for Peter Bjorn & John in the NYC area with a 14 date UK tour to follow in October. See below for a full list of shows.
