Swedish duo Niki & the Dove will release their debut album, Instinct, on Sub Pop on August 7. That's the airbrush-overload cover art above. (You can get it via iTunes on June 12.) Before that they'll be in Brooklyn for the Northside Festival, playing the Popgun party at Glasslands on June 14 with openers Selebrities. A limited number of Northside badges will be admitted, but advance tickets are on sale now.

In September, like The Vaselines, Niki & the Dove will be in for the Bumbershoot Festival (Sub Pop is currating a stage). The Vaselines also have an upcoming NYC show.

Niki & the Dove were last here in March right before SXSW and you can see photos from their Knitting Factory show here. Music videos for "Tomorrow" and "The Fox" are below.
