More on Miike Snow:
Man? DJ? Robot? Miike Snow is actually a band comprised of Swedish duo Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg, childhood friends who spent time playing in bands and working on various projects in studios throughout Gothenburg. After separate moves to Stockholm they reunited in 2000. Then In 2004, whilst working on writing a pop album for someone else, the pair met American songwriter Andrew Wyatt. The release was small, there was little distribution and an alleged large sum of money was lost in the process, but from the experience a friendship was formed, and in 2007 Miike Snow was born.
Karlsson and Winnberg’s backgrounds in the DJ scene and punk bands alongside experiments in progressive electro and new rave lead to a series of writing / producing stints with some of the world’s biggest recording artists – culminating in their Grammy win for Best Dance Recording for the song “Toxic” for Britney Spears. Wyatt has been a member in Black Beetle, Fires of Rome and The A.M as well writing and producing the new Daniel Merriweather album with Mark Ronson amongst other things.
