This Is . . . Icona Pop

When Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt shout "I'm a Nineties bitch" in their hit "I Love It," they're not kidding – the Swedish duo's music looks back to Jock Jams as the pinnacle of pop history. Their debut couldn't be more Nineties if it had a Michael Buffer voiceover or a song about Cory and Topanga. The pair instill joy and charm (and an occasional telltale Swedish accent) in head-hammering up-in-theclub chants about eternal weekends and heedless vitality. "Young, wild and free/Not gonna slow down" – from "Girlfriend" – is their message and their motto. Ke$ha, you've got two cousins in Stockholm.
