The Frontier Touring Company are thrilled to announce international indie-pop heroes Miike Snow will be performing headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney this August.
The band has been widely acclaimed for their songwriting finesse which comes as no surprise due to the musical experience of all three members.
Two of them, Swedish duo Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg, have previously written and
produced under the handle of Bloodshy & Avant, cranking out hits for artists such as Kylie Minogue, Madonna and Britney Spears for whom they wrote and produced smash hit Toxic and won a Grammy for their efforts.
Rounding out the phenomenal trio is US songwriter Andrew Wyatt, widely known for his wordsmith
abilities as a gifted lyricist. Their self-titled debut in 2009 included the epic Silvia and vibrant radio hit Animal and showcased their combined talents in an explosion of catchy melodies and compositional depth.
Karlsson and Winnberg have focused their talent and energy on catchy-yet-intelligent and
often challenging pop songs. And, crucially, theyve hooked up with American lyricist/vocalist
Andrew Wyatt. Not only do Wyatts words add a sharp lyricism to the beats, but his smooth,
expressive, charismatic voice gives them soul. popmatters.com
Following the albums release, Miike Snow have since toured with multiple sold out shows and
gained both an underground, word-of-mouth following as well as attracting massive crowds at some of the largest music festivals including South by Southwest and Coachella.
