Icona Pop is the moniker of Swedish electro-pop duo Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt. Similarly to their fellow Swede Robyn, Icona Pop are an unabashedly pop-club act. The first song I heard from them is the pop anthem I Love It, which features UK teen pop artist Charli XCX. It is an incredibly catchy song that will have you shouting “I Love It!!!” over and over again. All of the songs of Icona Pop are like these, with heavy elements of electronic dubstep thrown in. An undoubtedly good time with this duo.
Icona Pop are planning to release their debut record sometime next year. In the meantime, they are releasing a stop-gap EP, The Iconic EP, containing two of their upcoming singles for the forthcoming record including I Love It and fellow party anthem Ready For The Weekend.
