About the Artist

Miike Snow was formed in 2007 in Stockholm, Sweden. Band members Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg were childhood friends who spent time playing in bands and working on various projects in studios throughout the city of Gothenburg. Karlsson used to be a member of Swedish hip-hop band Goldmine, who toured with The Fugees. After separate moves to Stockholm, they reunited in 2000. In 2004, whilst working on writing a pop album for Britney Spears, the duo met the third band member, American songwriter Andrew Wyatt. Karlsson and Winnberg collaborated under the moniker Bloodshy & Avant, and enjoyed a significant amount of success as producers and songwriters. They have worked with artists such as Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Kelis, Sky Ferreira, and won a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording for Spears's track "Toxic". The name "Miike Snow" is said to have come from one of their friends named Mike Snow, with the spelling of "Miike" coming from the Japanese film director Takashi Miike. The band members are known to enjoy frequent crabbing trips together, although Karlsson has said publicly that he has a phobia of open water and boats.
