Niki & The Dove’s Instinct Out Today

After what felt like a very long wait, Niki & The Dove’s debut record, Instinct, is finally available to the world as of today. We’re so thrilled to get to share this triumph of Swedish pop music with you, that we’ve got a few Niki & The Dove totebags leftover to give to people who order the CD or 2xLP. We also have a small handful of the double LP left on the limited, Loser Edition ©, clear-colored vinyl (clear-colored is an oxymoron, we know); and, we’ll be sending you highish quality stickers for you to adhere on what you will adhere them on.

Please note that both the totebags and the Loser Edition vinyl LPs are very limited at this point, so act accordingly (accordingly means fast).

Pick up your copy of Instinct

Listen before you buy: stream Instinct in its entirety in the handy player above.
