The release is a triumphant return for the pair, it’s been ten years since their last album, and CLUB ROMANTECH certainly doesn’t disappoint, blending a vibrant mix of pop hits and dance floor-ready club tracks. The duo first gained international recognition with their punchy pop track, I Don’t Care, which became an instant classic and registered a return of a punky feminist sound to dance floors worldwide.

It’s a bold and infectious fusion of dance pop and crossover club tracks showcasing the duo’s evolution as performers and songwriters as they return to their electronic and alternative roots with a fresh perspective. A tour-de-force of fifteen tracks that balance bittersweetness with peak-time dance energy. From the dance-melancholia of Stockholm At Night to the sultry electro-pop of Need You, Icona Pop delivers range and depth in every song. 

Featuring collaborations with dance royalty, including Ultra Naté, Galantis, Joel Corry, and Sofi Tukker the album is a testament to Icona Pop’s widely varied career and their ability to constantly reinvent themselves. Songs like Shit We Do For Love with Yaeger, I Want You with Galantis, and Desire with Joel Corry and Rain Radio showcase their ability to create infectious hooks and high-energy anthems adding a fresh layer of excitement.

Icona Pop’s journey has taken them from underground DJ sets to chart-topping success and sold-out festivals performing alongside some of the biggest names in the industry and cementing their mark on the pop music landscape. 

With CLUB ROMANTECH, Icona Pop invites listeners into their world of electronic and pop music. It’s a world where energy and creativity collide, and where collaboration fuels their artistic vision.
