Icona Pop premiered their latest Emergency single for “First Time.”
The Swedish electropop duo wrote the song together when they formed in 2012, but only now released it, and we’re grateful they did. The throbbing mix pulsates the triumphant beat along their iconic vocals, and it’s one of the best anthemic party songs about getting drunk & high and falling in love we’ve heard in a minute; music needed this.
“There was something special about us / remember when we thought it’d never end”
The group’s Aino Jawo said of the track:
“The song has a whole new meaning to it now, looking back and reflecting on how far we’ve come since those early days when we were broke and didn’t have a clue what we were doing or where we were going!”
