Niki And The Dove will release a brand new EP 'The Drummer' on October 17 through Mercury Records.

The Swedish duo, who are made up of Malin Dahlstrom and Gustaf Karlof, released 'The Fox' EP earlier this year and are now set to release a second one, which, according to the band, "tells a story about a wrestle at night".

They explain:

'The Drummer' tells a story about a wrestle at night, in a no mans land, where everything is uncertain. It's about the inevitable question of if you're choosing the right direction in your life or not.



The band will be appearing on the Emerge NME Radar Tour alongside Wolf Gang and S.C.U.M, which kicks off on October 2 in Exeter. They will then go on to support Hurts in November at shows in Brighton, Glasgow and London.

The tracklisting for 'The Drummer' is as follows:

'Sundog'
'The Drummer'
'Last Night'
'Mother Protect'
'The Breath Of The World'
'Manon'
'The Birth Of The Sun'
