Niki & the Dove - Seattle Center, Seattle, WA, September 2
By Andrea WarnerThe Swedish sound is alive and well in electro-pop duo Niki & the Dove, but with just enough twists to keep things fresh. In their second show of Bumbershoot: Day 2, they turned the KEXP music lounge into a tiny, polite rave, shaking the basement-like dwelling with bone-rattling bass and artfully designed bleeps and blips from keyboardist Gustaf Karlöf. Visually, the pair pulled off a Miami Vice-meets-Ke$ha rainbow of vivid accessories, white boxy jackets and tapered trousers, which added to the sweetly surreal quality of vocalist Malin Dahlström, who sounds like a kitten singing underwater most of the time.
