“There are two things going for Icona Pop. Actually there are more than two, but the main two are that they’re a duo (always a good sign if you’re making electro-pop) and they’re Swedish (always a good sign if you’re making pop generally). Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo, are from Stockholm and make the kind of forward-thinking, effortlessly cool pop that seems second nature to most Scandinavians. Top Rated – released as a double A-side with the Patrick Berger-produced Manners this month – is all processed drum cacophonies, OTT synth lines and the duo’s deliciously blank vocals. After all that business with the Black Eyed Peas, it’s nice to have a song which reminds you that not all synthetic pop sounds like an annoying ringtone.”
