We get the Swedish pop stars who have continued to set dancefloors alight with their feel-good hedonistic songs to spill the beans on their top 10trax.
You may remember Icona Pop from their track “I Love It” which was pretty much played everywhere in the summer of 2012, and probably 2013 also.
Starting out as DJs before making the leap into pop stardom was pretty effortless for Icona Pop when it came to their knowledge of production, hedonistic antics that make for great lyrics and overall explosive energy. The girls are all about having fun, partying until the morning and sisterly love. That’s not to say the duo aren’t putting in the work. With a string of big releases throughout the year featuring the likes of Afrojack and Ricky Retro. Plus pretty much touring at every Pride event possible – the girls are definitely having a good time while making feel-good music.
With the release of their latest single “Next Mistake”, you’ll have to have this on loop and check out their top 10trax until we get some more Icona Pop in our lives.

"Tahult In" by Tinariwen
