Icona Pop to tour with Passion Pit
For the Swedish DJ/electronic girl duo Icona Pop, 2012 has been a good year. They made it onto Rolling Stone Magazine’s ‘Best Songs of 2012‘, SPIN Magazine’s ‘Best Pop Albums of 2012‘, Pitchfork’s ‘Top Tracks of 2012‘, Washington Post’s ‘Song of the Summer‘, Entertainment Weekly’s ‘Best Singles of 2012‘, Huffington Post’s ‘Best Song of 2012‘, Village Voice’s ‘Pazz+Jop Top Singles of 2012‘, and Idolator’s ‘Best Music of 2012‘.
Now, 2013 is looking to be great for Icona Pop, which consists of Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt. They’ve just announced that they’ll be supporting Matt & Kim and Passion Pit on their North American tour, which is coming to NYC to play at Madison Square Garden on February 8th.
As for another performance in the Big Apple coming up, the Icona Pop ladies agreed to perform at the Governor’s Ball Music festival in June, so that must be exciting for them too.
