Coming off their appearance at SXSW last week, the indie pop trio of American singer Andrew Wyatt, Swedish producing team Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg and supporting musicians, set up an elaborate stage show that was fit for an arena. Roaming set lights moved in sync with the pulsating beats as smoke machines filled the tiny venue and obscured the band's giant jackalope logo hanging behind them.
The collective whipped off the masks during their third song, 'Black and Blue,' no longer playing anonymously to the crowd. "It's good to be home," Wyatt announced to the pack of New Yorkers. Miike Snow continued to perform songs off their 2009 eponymous debut, including the emotive strains of 'Silvia' and the bouncing melody of 'Animal,' in between extended synth-based interludes.
The latter single was greeted with enthusiastic dancing from the Brooklyn audience. Yet Wyatt remained restrained and aloof onstage, except after the group unveiled a slinky new track towards the end of the concert. "What was the verdict on that one?" the frontman inquired, eliciting a rousing chorus of cheers from the crowd.
