While, we're discussing Icona Pop check out their new single “Get Lost” and the album only guest spot they did for Tiesto “Let's Go” (An euphoric improvement over the Calvin Harris produced single of the same name).
There is just something so cheeky and fantastic about everything they were. I love the tinny voice of Lene and that deep raspy voice of Rene. Their visuals were basically everything. The one thing that surprised me about them was the fact that they sang ballads.
That's actually what I'm listening to at the moment. “Be A Man” is my favorite ballad on the whole album. There's only three, mind you, but they pull them off surprisingly well. I am just having so much fun listening to them. They are terrible. They are filler. They are what I do my math homework to.
The struggle is real right now. I am in introductory algebra and I do not know what's happening. It's rough. Being the dumb friend everyone else is in calculus, pre-cal. Even finite, but I'm sitting over here being, “Oh, my god what even is the Pythagorean theorem.” I am not built for math.
It's at this point that they took a hiatus. They broke up. They were never going to get back together again. I did not look up the reason why. Maybe it was crushing success and touring I don't know. You can wikipedia it if you would like, but it did not peak my interest.
Of the ones I've listened to “Dirty Little Pop Song”, “Like a Robot”, and “How Are You Doing” are the most exciting. Although, ballad “Playmate to Jesus” despite some claims of sacrilege is pleasant. Perfectly competent.
The lead singer, Lene also released a solo album during their break up. So, if your just obsessed with her voice. But need them to put away the childhood play toys, look up Play With Me. Other then that revel in your childhood. They're a pop culture necessity.
