Beginning with a gregorian chant, the ladies of Icona Pop want you to know they are ‘Ready For The Weekend.’ Even if it is only a Monday night.
Not to be confused with the Calvin Harris song of the same name, ‘Ready…’ is a potpourri of current trends in electronic/pop music. I wont lie, there are some parts of this that do hurt my ears, but the meat of this track is quite pleasing. I prefer their own original flavor of indie dance pop, especially ‘Nights Like This.’ Alas, I have played this over and over today – it’s pretty damn good. Just changed my mind mid-post.
Listen to the extended cut below, which you can’t help but dance (even just a little) to. The single is out tomorrow, September 11 and precedes ‘The Iconic EP’ which drops October 16th and features previous jam ‘I Love It.’
