It seems Sweden is churning out an impressive line of musicians. I just had to start moving my body the first time an Icona Pop song came on, there wasn’t much else I could do. This hardcore feminine duo from Sweden have hit the electronic pop scene with some head banging tunes that are making it on everyone’s weekend playlist.
The duo is made up of Caroling Hjelt and Aino Jawo who formed their band in 2009. In 2010, they made a name for themselves with their song Manners, which also made an appearance in Chiddy Bang’s Mind your Manners. This past September they released This is… Icona Pop, which is filled with effortlessly fun songs to “which you can both laugh and cry with at the same time.”
These songs should start your Monday off with more than enough energy to get through the rest of the week. Give them a listen and enjoy!
