While some of you probably recall Icona Pop as the Swedish dance duo who gave us ubiquitous electronic anthem I Love It back in 2012, I’ll always cherish the duo as an electronic pop project, one that lured me in with magnificent singles like Manners and Nights Like This many years ago, even before the existence of IHM. Caroline and Aino are back after having collaborated with Louis The Child on dance hit Weekend with a fabulous new tune of their own. Brightside takes me back to those early electropop days. It’s a chromatic tinkling, melodic alluring sparkler of a heartwarming gem and the welcome lead single from the duo’s long awaited third full length album. Icona Pop’s music video for the song is the sort of down to earth, genuine fun that makes me want to hang out with Caroline and Aino as I was fortunate enough to do briefly one epic night in San Francisco several years ago. Purchase Brightside from various outlets, here, as we look forward to more news of that new album.
