This Is An 'Emergency': Icona Pop Drops New Summer-Ready Song - LISTEN

Emergency

Swedish pop duo Icona Pop are back with an infectious new track perfect for your summer playlists. "Emergency" marks something of a departure for Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo as Rolling Stone notes:

"While "Emergency" invokes the same kind of breakneck delirium that made Icona Pop's 2012 breakout hit "I Love It" a sudden, inescapable smash, the pair have swapped the relentless EDM thump for a big band-inspired groove."

As for the blending of subject matter and beat? 

"We like when you can listen to a song when you are happy and you can listen to it when you are sad," Hjelt told Rolling Stone of the pair's penchant for pop songs with a dark side. "Sometimes we have a message in the song that might be kind of angry or sad, but the song sounds happy."

Prepare yourselves for an emergency, AFTER THE JUMP...

NEW MUSIC: MAMMÚT, Fizzy Blood, Joe & the Anchor, Young Wonder, colourspacecolour

H2-703189963

New Music is brought to you by Deadly Music! which covers mostly indie, alternative, electro pop, post rock and ambient music, with a bit of everything else deadly thrown in for good measure.

Most songs reviewed here are available on a Soundcloud playlist, some of them on a Spotify playlist....both of which are embedded at the end of this post.

***

 

MAMMÚT - River’s End

Long successful in their native Iceland, MAMMÚT (above) is the latest signing to Bella Union and their new EP River’s End will be released on June 1st.

They recently gained prestige at home with their latest album “Komdu til mín svarta systir” winning the Icelandic Music Award for Best Album and the song ‘Salt’ awarded Best Song of the Year.

Inevitably, comparisons have been made with Björk and there is something of the vocal performance in it but a better Icelandic reference point might be Sigur Ros on their last album.

While the new English version is fantastic – as with The Sugarcubes there’s something more edgy and visceral on the original Icelandic version.

Listen to ‘Salt’ below in English and in the original Icelandic.

Fizzy Blood - “January Sun”

Fizzy-BloodFizzy Blood, an indie rock act from Leeds, England, have dropped the single ‘January Sun’ from their forthcoming debut EP Feast.

Despite having been together for just a year and having released only one song, the lads were invited to play Download Festival and have supported legendary punk outfit The Dead Kennedys.  

If you like your indie rock with a touch of post punk and a little bit of Pixies and Foo Fighters around the edges, this will be right up your street.

Said Lambert:

“If I knew I'd probably be dating somebody. I don’t know. I think you get into your 30s and you don’t know anything about anything and you’re okay with it! ... Sometimes [a twink]…Not so much a bear.”
