Icona Pop

Biography

When Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt met in 2009, they recall, it was something like 'love at first sight'. The two smart, spunky Swedish girls immediately began scheming to form 'the best band ever'. On the strength of breakout hit 'Manners', the electro-pop duo’s 'Nights Like This' EP was ranked as one of 2011's most promising debuts by Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and other essential tastemaking outlets ... and New York and London club kids instantly took note, making Icona Pop’s live show a must-see. The duo vaulted to the upper echelons of the pop scene with the smash success of ’I Love It’. With huge futurist sounds, soaring emotions, dancefloor confessions, and unabashed honesty, their self-titled debut album is sure to be—wait for it—iconic. That’s why MTV has named Icona Pop August’s PUSH artist. Stay tuned for more exclusives all month as we push Icona Pop toward international superstardom!
