Niki & The Dove Debut album – Instinct Released 14th May Mercury Records & UK Tour

Niki & The Dove, Sweden’s finest pro-pop musical duo, have announced the title and release date of their much-anticipated debut long player, ‘Instinct’. Out on 14th May in the UK, it features the critically-acclaimed singles ‘The Fox’ and ‘DJ, Ease My Mind’.


‘Instincts’ is set to be a landmark album. It’s a musical world of the bands’ own making. Spellbinding, it shows a band in complete control. Thrilling synth surges meet pop hooks, each track packed full of emotional weight. It’s a heavyweight pop record, one with a pure vision made up of very individual elements to create something wholly unique.


Forming in Stockholm in 2010 off the back of a long friendship, Malin Dahlstrom and Gustaf Karlof have so far released increasingly essential singles and EPs full of emotion, backed up by walls of synths, pounding drums and soaring vocals.


Niki & The Dove started the year in style, coming in at number 5 on the prestigious BBC Sound Poll, building on the fantastic support they’ve had over the past 12 months from Radio 1 from Annie Mac, and Huw Stephens, where the band’s latest single ‘DJ, Ease My Mind’ has been added to the B list. At the same time, they’ve appeared in the NME, Guardian Guide, The Observer, Sunday Times Culture and more. In recent months they’ve sold-out Cargo and supported Hurts on their UK tour.
