When Caroline and Aino, the names behind this Swedish electro-pop duo, first met at a party in 2009, it was ‘love at first sight’. Determined to create “the best band ever”, their musical collaboration started on the very next day. They quickly released their first single ‘Manners’. And so the future wonder of Icona Pop was officially formed.
The duo’s big breakthrough can be described with one phrase: ‘I Love It’. The 2012 monster hit (which dominated many top lists in the Western World, and appeared on several TV- and talk shows), became a milestone for Swedish pop music. The hit had big success world wide, especially in the US, where the single sold over 2 million copies.
As if reaching US Platinum sales isn’t enough to describe their success, Icona Pop is otherwise greatly awarded for their musical brilliance. For instance, they’ve received prizes and titles like “Swedish Breakthrough of the Year”, “Group of the Year” and “Song of the Year” (‘I Love It’).
Other great hits by Icona Pop are ‘All night’, ‘We Got the World’ and ‘Girlfriend’, which are all tracks from their latest album ‘This is…’ (TEN, 2013).
With their latest single ‘Just Another Night’, Icona Pop is convinced to maintain their success in future work and collaborations.
During 2014, they will be touring with mega stars Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry.
