C: Because we lived in LA for so many years, I love it. And I really miss it. But it made me appreciate writing music in Sweden again, because when we came back during COVID we had a really nice moment musically. We connected with people in a way where it was like, ‘Oh, this is where we’re from?’ And also the dance music in Sweden: it's very different from the dance music in the US. So I loved living the lives that we had, and living in LA and having the nature – and I miss our friends. But creatively, it was very, very healthy and good for us to go to Sweden.
A: Definitely! But also the fact that there was a pandemic played a huge role, because we couldn't do anything. If you weren't home, you were in the studio; and for us to stay sane, we everyday went into the studio. We had so much time – and we never have time. We just got to dive deep into the music in a way we haven't had the time to do before, and also figure it out: who are Icona Pop 2023?
C: And also just us talking. About what we’ve been through together, as friends, as co-workers, where we want to go; we talk about the world, life – you know, everything. Because we had the time.
