Icona Pop & The Song Of The Year?


I'm a bit late on this. Scandipop fans and other cunts I usually ignore have been raving about this duo for the best part of a year but until now I've failed to see the appeal. Sure, "Manners" (which has been heavily sampled by Chiddy Bang on his current hit "Mind Your Manners") was a good song - if slightly pretentious Swedish indie-pop floats your boat. Personally, I'd rather listen to Bionda. So imagine my surprise when I heard "I Love It" in a club and pretty much had a multiple eargasm. Pop doesn't come much better than this nuclear-powered rant. Imagine flawless early '00s girlband Daphne and Celeste crossed with Luciana's trademarked electro-shouting for some idea of what to expect. The production goes hard and that chorus will have every drunk bitch from Brisbane to Broome singing along. Their less-is-more approach to music videos (below) also demands our admiration. This is the cheapest clip I've seen since Madonna's last effort. "I Love It" has been picked up by Neon Records in Australia and has hit written all over it. Download Icona Pop's future smash today for bragging rights.

Discovering "I Love It" is like discovering gold. It makes you fucking happy. It can be said that this jam is pop gold.

I wish record stores still existed so I could go browse the Electro-Shouting section.
