There's a moon-goddess mysticism in the electro-pop of Niki and The Dove, something that brings a primal warmth to the icy pop sensibilities they share with similar Nordic acts (The Knife, Robyn). Their underrated 2012 release, Instinct, harnesses these humanizing influences: Prince, Kate Bush, Adam Ant, and Stevie Nicks, adding flamboyance and connection to the usual aloof-pop template. It's this mystical leaning that manifests itself onstage and in the crowd as jungle drums, feathers, glow sticks, glitter, and anything else that would turn a simple gig into a night to remember. Or in their words: "It's the heart, the heart/ It is what makes me human."
