Icona Pop is a duo all the way from Stockholm, Sweden. Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo deliver pop music that seems second nature to most Scandinavians.
Upon first hearing Manners you get it all – clapped beats, fizzy electronics, cute female vocals and a Sesame Street chorus. It’s verses are like the narration of a teenager’s diary, before the youthful confidence comes storming in, “take a second look and you’ll see, there is no one like me“. It’s a punchy pop song that has a wonderful blend of obvious hooks, big choruses and a chart-ready appeal, yet it’s still drenched in buckets of ice cool undertones.
Watch out for more of Icona Pop this year.
