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…
