Borgeous, Fawks Funk-Up Icona Pop's 'Brightside' for Remix EP: Exclusive

Jimmy Fontaine
Icona Pop

Get up, get up, it's time to show you the “Brightside” remixes. There's no sitting down with this Icona Pop tune around, and once the remix EP drops Friday, Dec. 9, on Big Beat Records, there will be no moping about in the dark like you don't have friends to go dance with.

Fawks hits first with a fiery, bass-riddled anthem. Drum'n'bass rhythms hit you in the face as cascades of colors explode all around. This is liquid sunshine for your ears. No frowns come around here, that's the rule.

Borgeous, on the other hand, slows things down a touch to give you that big moobahton boom. It's a massive festival style rework with a cool trap breakdown halfway through. It's like a warning siren goes off every time you try to start looking on the dark side.

“Brightside” is the first taste of what's to come from Icona Pop's forthcoming LP. The pair were just nominated for a Grammy with collaborator Justin Timberlake and their work on “Can't Stop The Feeling.” The Swedish sweethearts will also perform their sunny-side-up sing-alongs for the crowd at the Nobel Peace Prize Awards in Norway.

There are two more remixes from I M Alec and Just Kiddin on the official remix package, but you'll have to wait for those. Right now, you get Borgeous and Fawks exclusively on Billboard Dance.
