There are only two things you need to know about Niki & the Dove. One, they make intelligent electro-pop music that you can dance to and not hate yourself for later. And two, they are from Sweden. Malin Dahlström and Gustaf Karlöf form an unstoppable melodic force that bridges the best of early Prince with a new brand of alt-pop, creating a mood that instantly pulls listeners in and keeps them forever and ever (or at least until the set is over). With Vacationer and Royal Canoe. 18+.
