Ladies and gentlemen, the Swedish Invasion is upon us. Over the past six months, Icona Pop exploded out of Stockholm with an irreverent take on EDM and a monster hit single up their sleeves. With its pounding production and a six-word chorus that just begs you to scream along, “I Love It” is nothing short of pop perfection.
The song has already climbed to the top 10 in over fifteen countries and earned them invitations to tour with Passion Pit and make a high-profile appearance at the EDM-centric Ultra Festival in Miami. Even the hard-to-impress critics at Pitchfork couldn’t resist it, calling the song “Delectable, empowering, and infinitely repeatable,” and giving it their coveted Best New Track endorsement. But I suppose that’ll happen when your first single is the song of the summer…
Right now it’s Icona Pop’s world. We just live in it. In addition to having a double-platinum hit on their hands, the band just announced plans to release their international debut, the highly anticipated “This Is… Icona Pop,” at the end of September. Combined with their first-ever headlining North American tour, it’s guaranteed to be just as big as everything else they’ve done. Their Twitter page even reveals that the duo has collaborated with some of their successful friends on new tracks that are sure to get you moving.
So brace yourselves, St. Louis. Icona Pop is coming. Before they turn Forest Park into a giant discotheque, listen to “All Night,” the brand new single from their upcoming LP, “This Is… Icona Pop.”
