Miike Snow Happy To You on LP
Miike Snow is a Swedish indie-pop band formed in 2007 consisting of the production team of Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg, as well as American songwriter Andrew Wyatt. Karlsson and Winnberg have worked with such artists as Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears and Kelis among others. They originally met Wyatt in 2004 while working on Spears' Grammy-winning song, "Toxic."
The group's self-titled 2009 album was recorded in Stockholm and released by Downtown Records. The breakout single "Animal" has been featured in countless commercials and television and films including: Chuck, Cougar Town, Gossip Girl, 90201, Melrose Place and more. They had started the band as an ad hoc side-project between other jobs, but ended up with an album that was synced over 200 times in Hollywood and beyond. The out-of-the-box success of the ubiquitous "Animal," "Black & Blue" and "Silvia" took them by complete surprise.
This time around, buoyed by the success of their accidental debut, things would be different. Wyatt relocated to Stockholm, and the trio began recording their follow-up. The result is Happy To You, a big, bold and colorful album bristling with great tunes, catchy breakbeats and grand ideas that finds the group incorporating an orchestra and even a marching band.
