We're liking the work of Miike Snow, a band comprised of two Swedes and an American who like to keep themselves out of the public eye, preferring to use the image of a horned rabbit - the mysterious jackelope - as their visual identity instead. Mysterious indeed. Their eponymously named debut album, however, released in October, is anything but - an instantly accessible showcase of thoughtful pop that will have music journos frantically looking up words like 'ethereal' and lyrical' in their thesauruses. Listen to next single 'Animal' here, out on August 10.
