Swedish duo Icona Pop slowly but surely rocketed to US superstardom back in 2013 with their smash hit “I Love It,” a riotous Charli XCX co-penned summer anthem that earned them a Top 10 spot on the Hot 100 Billboard chart, as well as opening slots on world tours with Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus.
And now, it seems they’re about to go and do it all over again.
The girls just premiered their brand new single “Get Lost” on Swedish radio and…woooooosh! Like “I Love It,” “Get Lost” is the stuff of rebellious and youthful gold, as the girls escape the world in a sea of storming beats and battle cries. Between that complete and utter fists-in-the-air, middle-finger-to-the-world chorus (“Let’s get lost! Drive all night!/Leave this whole f–cked up world behind!”) and those anthemic chants (“WHOA-AOOHHHH WHOA-AOOOHHHH!“), “Get Lost” plays like an entirely worthy successor to their Top 10 smash — and, perhaps, the surprise Song Of Summer ’14. (They’ll probably want to record a radio-friendly version, though.) Listen to the almighty anthem below.
It’s feisty. It’s irreverent. It’s completely infectious — and you’ll probably be sick of it once radio has their way with it.
