music video: icona pop
like a mini-French film with the best soundtrack ever.

So it's fitting that for their music video the Swedish duo turned to the City of Lights as the setting for their lost-in-love story. The music video, shot entirely in black and white and clearly referencing some of our favorite old school French flicks, follows Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo as their both romanced by the same handsome Italian man. Who gets him? You'll have to watch all the way through to find out, though needless to say it's not exactly a happy ending.
Luckily, things have been going much better for the band IRL--in addition to a slew of dates through the US this December, they'll be back on February 14 opening for Miley Cyrus on her Bangerz tour for two months straight, before then meeting up with Katy Perry and playing with her through May. Which is another way of saying: Don't feel too bad for Icona Pop.
