    Beneath the distractingly high-pitched, multi-tracked vocals and tastefully tribal drama, there's nothing more threatening than a synthesized Florence + The Machine. [Jul 2012, p.107]

    There isn't a whole lot of diversity in the musical canvas here... Nevertheless, the album remains ridiculously infectious. Try as you may not want to, you'll be hard pressed to walk away not liking it, or without at least one of the ditties stuck in your head.

    With Instinct, Niki and the Dove have made an album that will surely resonate with the American crowds already grooving to the likes of Hot Chip, Passion Pit and Twin Shadow while providing Sub Pop with a whole new planet of sound to colonize.
