Lost In A Melody

Since their debut EP, Icona Pop’s output has been very hit and miss, and I can’t say I’ve been much of a fan of the generic dance route they seemed to have gone down, which meant sacrificing a lot of the quirkiness that attracted me to them in the first place. However, the new homoerotic video for We Got The World improves the Calvin Harris-esque song by miles and has reignited my interest in the duo, so I’m off to go give their debut album a spin ;)

Icona Pop have a new single from their Swedish debut album. The rest of the world will get a different single and just an EP. We Got The World sounds pretty similar to Ke$ha’s Die Young to these ears, and ultimately suffers from the same problems: effortlessly generic and lacking the punch that made their earlier material stand out. Hopefully the rest of the new tracks (including a version of I Love It featuring goth pop princess Charli XCX) will be much more exciting.

The “club mix” of Icona Pop’s new single Ready For The Weekend is, quite frankly, awful. The actual proper single version better be good :( In other news, there’s another EP coming, which sounds fun.

Here is a new Icona Pop song. It’s not very good. But don’t let that put you off. In fact, now that you’re here, why not go and listen to I Love It.
