First Time

Album: Emergency (2015)
  • songfacts ®
  • This upbeat, feel-good tune holds a special place for Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo as it was the first song they wrote when they got together in 2012. The Icona Pop duo finally recorded a version of the tune for inclusion on their Emergency EP. "It's such a special song to us and really is a celebration of friendship, whether it's with your boyfriend or girlfriend or best friend," Hjelt said. "We just wanted to capture that feeling again in a song and remind ourselves how important it is to never forget those special early days when you first meet someone."
