Even if you’ve already determined your personal song of the summer of 2014, it’s not too late to keep adding to your road trip or BBQ playlist, and Icona Pop’s latest song will fit the mood perfectly. An upbeat, infectious tune, “Get Lost” extols the virtues of being carefree and leaving “this whole fucked up world behind.”
While the song sports a thumping chorus reminiscent of the duo’s 2012 hit “I Love It,” which made a bid for song of the summer last year, its nostalgic production also feels like a descendant of some of the Go-Go’s biggest hits. Which is to say, it’s an ideal song for your own summer vacation.
