Whilst Swedish pop Miike Snow produced a series of highly accomplished and accessible contemporary pop songs last year with songs such as Animal and Black and Blue, they never set the UK charts on fire. This was a shame as what they delivered was significantly more enjoyable and better crafted than 90% of the singles that dominate the market place. Maybe the pop that Miike Snow create is just a little too perfectly refined and a little too cleverly produced to compete with the likes of the Bieber monster and Scouting For Girls.
But this isn’t going to stop Miike Snow trying. The trio are back with a new previously unheard song entitled The Rabbit, released on the 5th July from a new deluxe edition of their debut album. Produced by Miike Snow themselves and mixed by Stuart Price who is probably best known for his work with Madonna and Seal, The Rabbit skips in with subtly ambitious daytime-radio hooks and a cool nagging groove. The video references Florida’s 2 Live Crew and features some mean booty shaking. Here it is.
