Malin and Gustaf was first brought together in Gothenburg where they played together in different bands before forming Niki & The Dove in 2010 and releasing the debut single 'DJ, Ease My Mind'.
The following full length album, ‘Instinct', came one year later and consisted of chosen parts from the EP:s and previously unreleased tunes that landed Niki & The Dove a nomination for the prestigious BBC Sound of 2012.
Four years after ‘Instinct' another album was released. Under the title 'Everybody’s Heart Is Broken Now', thirteen pop songs were gathered, taking off from a song writing tradition where melody and the craft is focused upon. Among the tracks are the singles 'Play It On My Radio' and 'So Much It Hurts'. As inspiration for the sound, Malin and Gustaf kept certain catchwords in mind during the creation of the record. The finished product takes what started with 'DJ, Ease My Mind' in 2010 a step forward.
The album led them to be nominated in three categories at this years Swedish Grammy Awards. They also won ‘Pop Of The Year’ at the P3 Gold Awards 2017. Shortly after they released their latest single ‘Sushi King’.
