What was the crowd's reaction?
Holy shit, I have been to a lot of parties and seen a lot of shows, but I don't think I have ever experienced one exactly like this. Within the first three songs, Icon Pop had  put every single girl in the house into an excited estrogen-fuled frenzy.  This must be what Katy Perry shows are like, except the music was fucking awesome and the audience wasn't  dressed up in stupid blue wigs. Every dude in the place looked scared.

If you could insert any other musician into the band, who would it be?
Johnny Jewel from Glass Candy.

If you could see this band perform with any other musical group, who would it be?
A Swedish electronic showcase, because there is so much good shit in this genre coming out of Sweden right now. Acts like Niki & The Dove, The Knife, etc.

If this band were an animal, what and why?
Aino Jaw would be a Black Jaguar and Caroline Hjelt would be a Bengal Tiger. It would be cool  to CGI them into these animals for a music video.

If this band came to SLC, where would you want to see them play?
I think these ladies could handle the stage and crowd of the Twilight Concert Series in Pioneer Park. Although this is an electronic DJ duo, they have a lot of energy and were able to captivate a large audience.
