[Audio] Icona Pop’s new single

 

icona-pop

Swedish mega-duo Icona Pop have unleashed their forthcoming new single on the world, or possibly new single. The girls claim it’s a ‘taste of what’s to come’, but it sure sounds like single material. We say that because it’s probably the most accessible thing these two have done to date, not that their previous offerings weren’t accessible, but this is pure summer Pop.

Borrowing the chorus from 2Pac’s Me & My Girlfriend, Girlfriend starts off in a typically Indie-Electro vein, before launching into unadulterated, big and bolshie, power Pop. The unrelentingly energetic vocals, ring out like a call to action over some of the slickest produced chainsaw synths this side of 2009. This is going to be on the radio. A lot. I’d learn to deal with it if I were you.

[Art] Kann Denn Liebe Synthie Sein? on video

If you haven’t managed to catch any of Artist/Designer/Photographer/Synth nut Katja Ruge’s  Kann Denn Liebe Synthie Sein? exhibitions in the last couple of years, check out this video from her show at Reeperbahnfestival this year.

It’s a fun clip, with music out of Hamburg’s Synthesizerstudio and added Icona Pop, just for good measure.

[Video] Icona Pop’s ‘We Got The World’

It’s the video for insane Swedish ElectroPop duo Icona Pop’s We Got The World. It’s probably the most commentarial track they’ve done, big Trance leads and all.

Fredrik Etoall directs the clip. Be warned, Icona Pop are having more fun than you.

Icona Pop’s ‘I Love It’

Fun fact: I photobombed one of Caroline from Icona Pop’s photos at the weekend, she seemed quite impressed with my photobombing skills.

So here’s their new single ‘I Love It’. It’s rowdy, raucous and tons of fun. All screaming and chainsaw synths. It deserves to be huge. Fredrik Etoall directs the video.

Icona Pop’s ‘Manners’

Big things have been happening for Icona Pop since we last wrote about them.

The Swedish duo have been championed by Kitsuné and are now releasing their new single on Neon Gold. If those two labels like you , you know you’re doing something right!

The new single, ‘Manners’ is more of the rough and ready SynthPop we love Icona Pop for. Débuted on Kitsuné Maison 10, the single is an anthemic power Pop track that is given an edge by a raw drum track the vitriol hidden within the sweet, sing-along, vocals.

Swedish Electro girls Icona Pop are giving their new single away for free!

First appearing on Kitsuné’s ‘Maison 10’ album with ‘Manners’ the duo’s new single ‘Still Don’t Know’ is a slice of noisy, post-The Ting Tings, ElectroPop. The heavy live drums and vintage synth sounds give the track a garage SynthPop feel with some raucous vocals tograb your attention. I can see Icona Pop getting pretty big next summer.

We shall see…
