Icona Pop - We Got The World
Icona Pop burst on the scene this year with their breakout single I Love It. That's still one of the best tracks of 2012, but it's time to move onto a follow-up. We Got The World is not quite as aggressively performed, but it does borrow the sing/shout style we've grown accustomed to from the girls. This is more of a dance track, and slightly more conventional because of it. Still, it bridges the gap well from the unfiltered statement-of-intent that was I Love It to something more mainstream. But more than that, Icona Pop represents a new hope for me. Sweden used to be my number one go-to country for new, exciting pop music. However, the past couple years very little exported from the country has really caught my imagination. I'm hoping a band like Icona Pop paves the way for more upcoming artists to follow in the big footsteps of folks like Robyn, the Ark and Melody Club (to name only a very few!).
