Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjel, the girls of Icona Pop, have toured with so many incredible acts over the years. Right now, they're opening for One Direction on their On the Road Again tour, but they previously were featured on Miley Cyrus' Bangerz tour. Needless to say, those are completely different artists with separate sounds and tour styles, but Icona Pop has loved and respected working with both acts!
"They’re both very different but also [surprisingly] very similar in a way," the girls dish to TWIST exclusively. "Both Miley and the One Direction guys, they’re like, in control, and the fans know that so they respect that which is amazing."
"Of course it’s very different energy on the Miley tour for example: she’s a completely different artist with a completely different fan base," they continue. What is similar is that she’s a boss. She just does everything, it’s very inspiring, it was so cool to be around that. [With] the smallest, littlest decisions [about the tour, everyone would] ask Miley. We would always look to her. With the [1D] guys they write their music, they do their thing on stage, they are the ones that have to mix in with their fans. It’s very inspiring to be around, it’s cool."
We're glad to hear there were so many creative exhanges behind-the-scenes of these mega tours!
