[Electro - Pop] Icona Pop - I Love It

So it's that time of year where people start talking about potential "songs of the year", and Stockholm pop duo Icona Pop's latest single, "I Love It", seems like a righteous contender from the get-go. Delectable, empowering, infinitely repeatable a slice of buzzy electro euphoria that fits easily with both modern pop and electronic music's recent turn towards total maximalism.

[Indie - Rock] Tango In The Attic - Mona Lisa Overdrive

Knocking their amps up to eleven, Tango In The Attic return with “Mona Lisa Overdrive,” the second single to be lifted from their forthcoming second album, “Sellotape.” A hazy, lo-fi masterpiece, “Mona Lisa Overdrive” is a stunning showcase of Tango In The Attic’s new identity and has really whet our appetite for their forthcoming long player.

[Electronic] Van She - Idea of Happiness (SebAstian Remix)

Van She - "Idea Of Happiness" I’ve already posted “Idea Of Happiness,” the new single from Aussie BTW Van She. And now the French dance producer SebastiAn has turned in a buzzing, clanking, club-ready remix of the track. Back in the day (like four years ago), this used to be called “blog-house.”
