The Swedish electropop act’s single “Girls Girls” (co-written with their close friend Tove Lo) bounces with the familiar energy that we have come to expect from Icona Pop. Another recent collaboration with Chicago duo Louis The Child, “Weekend” boasts an iTunes Dance Top 10, 4.5 Million streams in the US and a live Coachella performance.
Prior single, “Brightside,” produced by MSTR ROGERS (also a collaborator on “Someone Who Can Dance”) and Louis The Child’s Freddy Kennet, is celebrated by a cinematic music visual following a dance-party nightcap in an empty Los Angeles restaurant in Chinatown, featuring impressive choreography and some of the chicest vintage and designer looks self-styled by the fashionistas themselves.
Since the release of their debut album “This Is… Icona Pop” (via Record Company TEN/Big Beat/Atlantic Records) in 2013, the duo have been featured in the hit HBO series GIRLS; alongside live performances on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, NBC’s The Today Show, ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman, and America’s Got Talent; and sold-out worldwide tours supporting Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and One Direction.
Capping 2016 with an appearance at the coveted Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo further garnered a global campaign with makeup titans Make Up Forever and a cameo in the Dreamworks animated film Trolls.
