The first of several posts I should have done blog-months ago but never got the chance, so I’m doing it now. One of my favourite tracks from Miike Snow’s self-titled debut, “Black and Blue” blends beautifully together those addictive vocals, charming piano stabs and Wyatt’s signature lyrics that he works so hard to place in that middle ground between the simple and the cryptic.
The single is being released on October 19th and includes a remix by Swedish duo, Savage Skulls, who released an EP on the legendary Dubsided earlier this year. It moves back and forth from the smokey windowless depths of the club jam to the fresh air of the pretty original.
You can also pick up the Tiga remix here while you’re at it. It’s pretty much everything you’d expect it to be.
