For the longest time I was under the impression that Miike Snow was the lead singer of this little trio. After a bit of research the name actually was influenced by a personal friend. The unique spelling “Miike” was influenced by a Japanese film director, Takashi Miike. I’ve recently started getting more and more interested in Electro Pop groups like Passion Pit, Miike Snow and The Temper Trap. It’s nice to see these bands perform live! It really shows the musicians have some real talent to contribute. The group is based out of Sweden and formed in 2007. The actual trio is made up of Andrew Wyatt, Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg. Christian and Pontus also make up the reputable Bloodshy & Avant. The duo accomplished success as producers for artists such as Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Kelis and won a Grammy for Best for the track “Toxic” by Spears.
Below is a live performance of the band’s Sylvia.
