Miike Snow attracted a massive crowd to Coachella’s outdoor stage, where they pumped out slithery, high-BPM jams under an elaborate lighting rig that cast the oft-mysterious band in shadow. Huge applause greeted hits from their debut album, like “Silvia”, but the crowd also seemed psyched for the trio’s latest, Happy To You — and just in case, the band (2/3 of whom, of course, are Swedish producers Bloodshy & Avant) amped up their performance of new jam “Black Tin Box” by bringing out fellow Swede Lykke Li, who features on the track. Along with Swedish indie faves Peter Bjorn and John, Miike Snow and Lykke have also collaborated on a newly formed record label called Ingrid. Why? Because, as the pop faithful know, you can’t mess with Sweden.
