Familiar with the Swedish pop sensation known as Miike Snow?? If not, do take notice.
We have a real problem. Seriously. Once we started listening to Miike Snow's music, we simply could not stop. So damn infectious.
This complication started a few months ago upon listening to several of Miike Snow's remixes of his pretty much amazing jam, Animal, on repeat until our ears went numb. Well, we were temporarily cured and had not even thought of the song since. . .that is, until we heard Animal on Gossip Girl (admittedly) last night. We both perked up when this tune was played during a pivotal scene and smiled - apparently, this song was not going to go down without a fight. Needless to say, it has been ruthlessly ingrained in our heads all day today.
So, here you go, we're hoping that we'll remedy our hopeless affinity toward this song by spreading the word and sharing it with you all:
Diclaimer: Listen to at your own risk.
[Mp3] Miike Snow - Animal (original) The kind of song that leaves you holding onto (or longing for) the warm weather that is about to slip through our fingertips. . .A true essence of Peter Gabriel is evident, making this song something that fans of Vampire Weekend will undoubtedly fall head over heels for.
Our favorite remixes:
1. [Mp3] Miike Snow - Animal (Mark Ronson Remix) For being on the chill tip, this one is ON FIRE. Between the staxx record style horns and the dubb beats, it's BEYOND infectious.
2. [Mp3] Miike Snow - Animal (Treasure Fingers Remix) We are both absolute suckers for synths and adore the new wave vibrancy. This track makes us want to get up and dance, even though we (both) cannot dance, if you know what we mean.
3. [Mp3] Miike Snow - Animal (Peter Bjorn & John Remix) Great use of xylophone-esque keyboard melodies with upbeat echoed and blurred vocals. The most similar to the original, yet definitely takes the song to another level.
Bonus: Would you like to hear a different song, rather than like four versions of the same one?
