What people are saying about Niki + The Dove:
“…It’s a beautiful, emotive celebration of the power of pop when it’s been made for the love of the art.” – BBC

“They deserve to have the whole word hear these songs. Heck they deserve some sort of Nobel Pop Prize.” [8/10] – NME

“The greatest thing about “Tomorrow” is that even though the end of days may be nigh and this may be the last moment of these lovers’ lives, that cry of intent is delivered like a knockout punch." [Best New Track] – Pitchfork
