New Niki & The Dove Video – Under The Bridges

by MV

Swedish pop: the gift that will never, ever stop giving. This falls firmly into The Knife’s corner, with very Karin-esque vocals and a slightly offbeat sensibility. But it, somehow, goes spectacularly beyond that. Imagine the Knife if they’d continued to develop musically from Deep Cuts, but let in the light instead of embracing darkness. If that appeals, then you absolutely need to listen to this. Initially minimal and unassuming, it’s soon taken over by cleansing cascades of positive energy. Really brilliant, affirming stuff.

The video, on the other hand… well, it exists. Let’s leave it at that.
