Niki & The Dove is a band from Stockholm, Sweden with two members, Malin Dahlström and Gustaf Karlöf. Founded in 2010, Malin and Gustaf have spent the time writing together and figuring out the exact niche in the broad world of pop music.
Their first single DJ, Ease My Mind, was released on UK independent label, Moshi Moshi, and caught the attention of critics worldwide. The Sunday Times declared the song could easily be “the best of 2010.” “DJ, Ease My Mind” revealed a band with a precociously fully-formed sound and now their self-released follow up “Mother Protect ” shows that Niki & The Dove are truly going to do great things for music.
Although the follow-up track is only available through their website, the album has received loads of support from radio personalities and news and media outlets worldwide, including The Independent who said the track “grows brilliantly into a low-key epic.”
The unique sounds of Niki and The Dove are something that can only be truly fully appreciated in a live performance, and this one will definitely be one you don’t want to miss.
Niki and The Dove will be at Rock and Roll Hotel on Friday, January 11. Doors open at 8 p.m and tickets are $15.
