Let's be real: You love "Fancy" because of Charli, not Iggy. It's the XCX hook that's stuck in your head. Same goes for Icona Pop's "I Love It." We've been championing the 22-year-old London songstress from the get-go, and it's about time she hits the charts with a song that does not put "feat." before her name. We've got to admit that the lady's dark, bouncy electropop is pretty irresistible. Onstage she exudes untortured confidence, gyrating her hips in a PG-rated style with irresistible synth goodness. A highlight of her catalog is ’80s-throwback jam “Nuclear Seasons,” produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Blood Orange). Holychild opens the show.
