Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt met on a Saturday night in February 2009 and by Monday, these two girls from the Stockholm suburbs formed a electronic pop duo band and booked their first gig. In the intervening years they’ve moved from Stockholm to London, worked with The Knocks (voted one of NME’s hottest production outfits of the hour), Patrik Berger (Robyn), Elof Loelv (Niki & The Dove), Fredrik Berger (The Good Natured) and Style of Eye, as well as UK producers like Starsmith (Kylie, Ellie Goulding) and Burns. Their Neon Gold-released double a-side single ‘Manners’ / ‘Top Rated’ prompted journals like NME and The Guardian say things along the lines of “effortlessly cool” and “all the makings of a 24-carat pop hit”, and the duo have perfected their live show, too.
