Icona Pop is a Swedish electropop duo that formed in 2009, with electro house and indie pop music influences. Its two members Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo grew up in Stockholm and create what the Swedish press has described as music which “you can both laugh and cry to at the same time”. They signed to TEN Music Group in 2009 and are currently also in a label deal with Ultra Music. Their biggest hit to date has been “I Love It”. Since September 2012, they have been based in Los Angeles and New York City. Caroline Hjelt (born 8 November 1987, of a Swedish mother and Sweden-Finnish father ) and Aino Jawo (born 7 July 1986, of a Finnish mother and Gambian father) attended the same music school in Stockholm, but met by chance at a party in February 2009 and formed the duo. Four weeks later, they had written songs for their very first performance. Two years later, the two described their music as “classical pop melodies with drums and synths” Here are all of Icona Pop’s albums ranked.

2. Iconic EP, 2012
“A solid, decent dancefloor filler of an album. The vocals are infectious and most of the tracks will have you chanting like a follower of a queen bee. This is a nice refreshing pop album that doesn’t rely on over-the-top lyrics or lavish beats. just fun and liveliness attitude. this is what I hope pop continues to evolve with”
1. This Is… Icona Pop, 2013
“This album is a whole heap of fun. Honestly, it probably has considerable similarities to dance-pop in the charts that I deride, but there is just something vibrant about the way Icona Pop go about their business. This Is… simply has a fresh and enthusiastic vibe that sets it apart from your cookie-cutter chart material, and most of the songs rely on really strong, upbeat, memorable chorus hooks. The quality of the performance diverts attention away from some of the banal lyrics – and even turns them into something of an innocent, joyful strength on the best tracks like “All Night”.
