EDITORS’ NOTES

In 2012, the Swedish EDM-pop duo Icona Pop (Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo) turned out one of the most empowering and brilliant tunes of the last decade: "I Love It." A rallying cry for young women everywhere, the track quickly found its way to videogames, commercials, and TV shows (including an episode of Girls). Written by English techno-pop artist Charli XCX, the song pounds with rebellious attitude and confident dismissal: "I crashed my car into the bridge/I don't care! I love it!" shout the duo with unbridled glee. A second single from their U.S. album, “All Night,” showed a slightly softer (albeit just as bouncy) side to Icona Pop, as they pined in slightly sweeter tones, “We could do this all night!” It’s a fairly sugary, crowd-rousing moment, but other songs show more depth: “Just Another Night" isn't as ebullient; it's a lament that features a single voice rather than the duo’s continual double whammy. The wistful “Just Another Night” also showcases some power-packed vocals.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Just Another Night

Never heard of them until I saw them sing this song on Carson Daily...transfixed by their beauty as well as their performance. Originality!

Icona Pop

It's nice to see that these girls have actual talent. I was fearing that they would become somewhat of a one hit wonder with their song "I Love It" but after hearing the other songs from their album it is clear that they will be around for a long time. The songs "All Night" "Girlfriend" and "Just Another Night" are all great songs that I would reccommend, as well as "I love It"
