International acts have wreaked havoc on the US charts in 2014 like never before. Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz led the charge with summer smash “Am I Wrong”, while Sweden’s Tove Lo broke big with “Habits (Stay High)” and Australian singer/songwriter Vance Joy just cracked the Billboard Hot 100 with debut single “Riptide”. Another name to add to that growing list is German duo Milky Chance.
They have one of the most unlikely hits of the year on their hands with “Stolen Dance”. Clemens Rehbein (vocalist) and Phillip Dausch (producer) posted the hypnotic folk-pop anthem online and were soon topping charts across Europe. The song’s popularity then extended to Australia and New Zealand, and it’s now climbing iTunes stateside. Fall in love with Milky Chance up top.
