Pitchfork is on board:
Am I the only one utterly obsessed (note: not in a creepy way) with Aino Jawo? Something about her activates all my gayboy-fandom-for-female-popstars tendencies. She just seems so spunky and awesome. I present for inspection:
Oh I wanna marry them both.
I LOVE IT.
I WANT TO BUY IT.
Seriously. Nothing annoys me more than an artist who refuses to let me throw money at them. Yes, Richard X, you can put that Cassie remix on iTunes now.
Yes, they do just that. Say no to money, nothing to do with Itunes / restrictions / deals / hopes for a better future.
Please don't ruin my anger with reality, vasilios.
I have no doubt "I Love It" will be available to buy outside of Sweden soon enough.
Bugging Swedes on Last.fm to buy a copy for me from iTunes... I always want something more once I know it's not available to me.
Finally listening to this in HQ because I was able to buy it! Once again I defeat the evil international iTunes store restrictions! Soon, I will have an army of contacts stationed in each territory, happy to accept my GBP.79p for an .m4a which can't be bought here because the music industry still sucks. It's 2012! World wide releases are the way forward!
New song 'Rocket Science' : http://www.scandipop.co.uk/?p=10224
Not as good as I Love It.
I can't get over I Love It. It's so perfect and euphoric. Rocket Science is amazing too.
'I Love It' is massive - it has that propulsive momentum that made 'I Gotta Feeling' so great, and of course the fact that Charli XCX wrote it only adds to its brilliance.
Charli XCX wrote it?! That is fantastic!
Continuing the whirlwind tour of Icona Pop General Amazingness, I just stumbled across this which I missed the first time around:
"the cats just had this look of 'when you're asleep, I'm going to kill you.'"
Have you ever asked anyone for their autograph?
Oh yeah, but I think I was smaller. It was Dr Alban [of It's My Life 'fame'].
A shitty Dr Alban PA at a summer disco summer of 1990 was my first 'concert'.
'Rocket Science' is amazing! I'm going to need an album from them as soon as possible.
Wonderful, amazing, brilliant, brief little feature/interview thing in Pitchfork:
Are 679 Records sniffing round them? They have a lot of Marina merch about their person. Hmmm.... the next Oh My!?
