MiiKE SNOW REV UP FOR iii

Miike Snow is revving back up. Their highly anticipated iii is set to drop via Atlantic March 4th. But let’s face it, this Swedish synthpop trio is all about their propensity for bombastic club hits.

“Heart is Full,” the first single off their new album, dropped late last October.  The track fits neatly into Snow’s boogy-inducing catalog.

In typical Miike Snow fashion we have here 4 minutes of polished, immaculately-produced, radio-ready dance pop.  The track opens with a sample of “The Cook Up“, a deep album cut of Apollo Brown and Guilty Simpson’s 2012 record Dice Games.

Andrew Wyatt compares the heat of love, or perhaps the commitment, to a prison sentence: “I’ve got you locked down like police / And no three-to-five, you’re doing life, so.” The chorus here doesn’t exactly make sense either; “Please don’t knock over my heart / because my heart is full of you.” It’s a bit perplexing. It’s damn catchy.

This one’ll get the crowd jumpin’ for sure when Miike Snow takes the highly coveted Coachella stage this April. We’ll see you there.
