Miike Snow has released the provocative video for anthemic new single ‘Genghis Khan', directed by award-winning Ninian Doff (Pulse Films).
Billboard has commended ‘Genghis Khan’ as “more proof that (Miike Snow) are reinventing themselves yet again,” while SPIN saluted the track’s “crisp kick-snare-fill punch and sterling pianos,” declaring it “very much a return to form for the trio.” “A bright, funky reminder of Miike Snow's serious pop chops,” affirmed Rolling Stone in an exclusive interview with the trio’s Andrew Wyatt, while Noisey hailed “Genghis Khan” for its “booming synth hits, and a melt of different vocals layering over each other, making the track another certified banger.”
The band has also partnered with Tumblr and Spotify to create a stunning interactive iii Tumblr experience, allowing fans to listen to tracks from the upcoming album while simultaneously explore unique music and art related to those songs. Miike Snow member Andrew Wyatt took part in a special Tumblr Answer Time yesterday via Miike Snow’s Tumblr page in advance of the ‘Genghis Khan’ video premiere.
Miike Snow has also unveiled plans for a major North American headline tour – the Swedish/American trio’s first in more than three years. The dates celebrate Miike Snow’s new album iii, out March 4 via Downtown/Atlantic Records (Warner Music NZ).
