Miike Snow is a Swedish band that formed in 2007, but released their self-titled debut in 2009. The featured video above, “Animal,” was released in August of last year, and circulated a buzz amongst blogs. The electro-reggae-beat of “Animal” is a bright contrast to dark lyrics like, “I change shapes just to hide in this place but I’m still, I’m still an animal.” The group has received high acclaim in Sweden, and throughout Europe, and will be touring the US in the next few months (April for SF folks).
