LISTEN: Icona Pop Return With ‘Emergency’
Icona Pop have unveiled the
technically second lead single from their second international and third overall album.
Just a warning before you hit play below; if you were expecting to be fist pumping ‘in the club’ to this one, we very much doubt that’ll be happening. ‘Emergency’ is very much what we can only describe as contemporary-jazz-soul-pop. Sadly, we’re not sure this single quite works. ‘Why?’ I hear you ask!
The whole thing is just sort of awkward, who is the man that is singing the chorus of this single? Why is he not credited?
It’s not that we only want to hear Icona Pop release club bangers, and it’s not that we don’t appreciate an artist taking a different direction, but it sort of has to make sense, for that to work, and this just, doesn’t.

‘Emergency’ will be released on May 26th and you can listen below:
Icona Pop’s latest album will be released via TEN, Big Beat and Atlantic Records.
