Swedish electropop duo Icona Pop releases the Iconic EP today — the group’s first release for electronic powerhouse Big Beat Records. Featuring many of the tracks that catapulted the pair of Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo to blog superstardom, Iconic highlights the catchy ebullience and slick production that allows Icona Pop to stand out in the increasingly homogeneous dance music world.
In addition to the previously released single “I Love It” (featuring guest vocals from witchy UK teen Charli XCX), new track “Good For You” pairs pulsating dance beats with Icona Pop’s signature sing-song hooks. It’s the ultimate kiss-off, disguised as a sickeningly sweet love song.
Icona Pop is currently touring select cities across the United States and Europe. Check out the group’s upcoming performances and listen to Iconic below.
