Musically, Sweden is known for two things: chilly, hateful extreme metal and sunny, effervescent pop music. Miike Snow fit squarely in the latter camp, despite having an American singer / songwriter in Andrew Wyatt. "The Wave" is the second single from their sophomore album, Happy to You, and continues in the vein of cheeky, obscure videos established with previous single "Paddling Out", both directed by Andreas Nillson. Both are part of a story arc about humans being abducted by aliens in order to create the perfect human being Frankenstein-style. If you purchase the "Jackalope Edition" of Happy to You there's a remix of "The Wave" included on the bonus disc.
