About Pop Icona
Sometimes best friends make the best music partners. Thus is the case for Swedish electro-pop duo Icona Pop, which features 'besties' Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt.
If you don't know their story, Jawo and Hjelt went to the same school in Stockholm, but came together by chance when they crossed paths at a party back in the winter of 2009. Just four weeks later, they had written songs and performed together for the first time as a duo. The pairing worked, garnering glowing reviews from live performances, with critics calling them "effortlessly cool."
Icona Pop hit it big with the 2010 debut single "Manners," which was released on the French label Kitsune, and the EP "Nights Like This" on Mercury Records. Before long they were performing on the European festival circuit, and playing everywhere from the UK to Germany, Italy and Canada. They also made their U.S. debut in 2012 and released their second EP, "The Iconic," which featured the massive hit single "I Love It" as a digital download.
By 2013, Icona Pop was named one of Fuse television's 30 must-see artists at the South by Southwest festival. Their songs were also being used on shows like "The Vampire Diaries," and they made the rounds of late-night and early-morning talk shows. It all led up to the release of their debut international album, "This …Icona Pop" on September 24, 2013. The first single, "Girlfriend," was followed by "All Night," "We Got the World" and "I Love It" (featuring Charli XCX).
Icona Pop is currently playing a handful of dates in Sweden and Norway, and will take the stage at the Popload Festival in San Paulo, Brazil on November 28, 2014.

Riding the wave of this success and the release of her upcoming album, Charli XCX is…Read more
