Icona Pop

Biography

Icona Pop, aka Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt, is a Swedish pop duo. Having met at a party that Caroline was hosting, the two DJs decided that neon lit night to write songs about dark feelings and happy moments. The heartbroken soul and the frustrated mind combined their efforts and Icona Pop was born. These girls speak their minds and want everybody to sing along.

With an upcoming guest spot on Chiddy Bang's track 'Mind Your Manners' (which samples their debut single 'Manners') and an album on the way, Icona Pop are poised to set the pop world alight with their unique style and smart, forward-thinking, effortlessly cool tunes.
