Icona Pop rage like everybody’s watching in their “We Got The World” video.
Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt, the duo behind Swede club titans Icona Pop, really really like to party. It’s not hard to tell — their previous rager-ready, synth-based tracks “I Love It” and “Ready For The Weekend” are tailor-made for any and all American Apparel-outfitted early-morning club visits, and just the fact that they sing Snooki and JWoww’s theme song speaks VOLUMES (literally). In fact, party is basically all they do in their new video for “We Got The World,” the latest single from their EP Iconic. Seriously, these guys make Vengaboys look like geriatric bedtime grandmas (not that there’s anything wrong with that. Sleep is GOOD and don’t let anybody ever try to convince you otherwise).
Watch Icona Pop’s “We Got The World” video after the jump.
Documenting their touring life (not unlike Metric’s new video for “Breathing Underwater”), the Fredrik Etoall-directed clip has Icona Pop all over the place — crashing in hotels, driving through the desert (there’s definitely a Spice Girls “Say You’ll Be There” vibe), playing packed-to-the-brim shows, posing with drag queens, getting kinda naked, swimming in pools, looking too hip for life, you name it, they’re doing it. If there’s anything we can take away from this video, it’s that Icona Pop’s touring life is just as loud, catchy, stylish, fast-paced, and naked as their music would indicate. In fact, we think we need one of those grandma naps right now just from watching.
As for what’s next for Aino and Caroline, Icona Pop will be releasing a remix EP on Nov. 19 via Big Beat Records (home to Skrillex!) and are currently working on a new album to be released in early 2013. They’ll also be opening for Marina And The Diamonds next month in the U.S. (NYC’s Terminal 5 included)!
