On March 14 Under the Radar will host the first of three free SXSW Day parties sponsored by PRS Guitars. Leading up to the event we’re letting you know about each artist playing. Today we’re spotlighting Niki & The Dove.

In a previous post we gave you the basic party details of the party: The party happens from 12:00-6:00 PM at the Flamingo Cantina at 6th and Red River (515 E. 6th Street, Austin, TX 78701). All events are free and open to the public—no RSVPs or badges are required. The first day also features performances from Body Language, Trust, Hooray for Earth, Reggie Watts, and The Love Language. The Drums will be headlining the event. Come early for free beer courtesy of Sapporo USA (while supplies last). Other sponsors include Dorado Music Packaging and Motormouthmedia.

Malin Dahlström and Gustaf Karlöf aren’t afraid of theatrics. The Swedish musicians—who perform as Niki & The Dove—sprinkle their electro pop with glitter-filled melodrama that sits somewhere between the chilling soundscapes of Fever Ray and the bombast of Madonna. Their debut full-length Instinct (due out this May via Sub Pop) promises to be the band’s grandest statement yet.

In an unhealthy relationship (i.e., one that really isn’t working), when you hit those periods of conflict, you’ll notice either right away or soon enough that you are not a team struggling for mutual well-being.
