Devil's Work

Album: Happy To You (2012)
  • Miike Snow is an indie pop band formed in 2007. The band consists of American vocalist Andrew Wyatt and Swedish producing team Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg, who under the guise of Bloodshy and Avant have worked with Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue and Madonna. The trio named themselves after a friend of the band called Mike Snow, with the extra 'i' of "Miike" coming from the Japanese film director Takashi Miike. This is a track from their second album, Happy To You, which is titled after an old computer that Karlsson found in Thailand.
  • Winnberg told The Sun about the genesis of this '90s piano-led House tune: "We were messing about with piano chords that gave us the start of The Devil's Work," he explained. "It reminded us of that old school dance feel. Hands in the air, ready to dance."
