Niki And The Dove "Mother Protect"
- Words: Stefan Nickum
At this point, little is known about Swedish group Niki And The Dove, apart from the fact that it's made up of a singer named Malin and collection of old friends and associates. Though thin on background info, Niki And The Dove's music follows in the spirit of lush, expertly realized Swedish pop à la The Knife or The Tough Alliance. At the outset, Niki And The Dove's "Mother Protect" features understated percussion similar to that of minimal techno, but as soon as the chorus hits, the song transforms into a full-fledged pop song, albeit one that channels Kate Bush's mystical eccentricity. After giving "Mother Protect" a listen, check out the beautifully rendered video of another epic song, "Under the Bridge," which is posted after the jump.
