I'd never heard of her until a few months ago, but her latest EP is amazing. Really excited for the album.

Tove_02-940x429.jpg

 

Tove Styrke became a star in her native Sweden as just a teenager, finishing third on Swedish Idol in 2009 and subsequently launching a career in the country’s finest export: big, luminous electro-pop. But like most people entering their twenties, her tastes changed. Last fall, 22-year-old Styrke — not to be confused with Tove Lo, of sex-clubs-and-Twinkies fame — dropped the Borderline EP, six clever coming-of-age tracks about womanhood and finding your voice that revealed more diverse influences on the reggae-tinged title track and the spunky “Even If I’m Loud It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking to You.”

 

Okay my artist threads are either huge successes, dismal flops, a year ahead of their time, or I'm the only one excited about them. I'm obviously hoping for the first but expecting the last here. I heard Tove's new track "Ego" like two weeks ago and was mildly impressed, but as soon as I downloaded her latest EP Borderline I became absolutely obsessed--even her cheesy Europop 2011 debut is shockingly great. Think the same topical and sonic realm as MØ but more distinct.

 

Ideal entry point:

 

Current single:

 

The past:

 

My favorite song:

 

Not gonna @ you hoes!

I found the album release date last Friday, and tried to find more info yesterday - Deezer and Sainsbury's already have the album listed but Amazon deleted it from their site.

I listened to "Ego" a few weeks and it did nothing for me. "Borderline" is alright but still I'm not freaking out over it yet either. I feel like some of my faves have required me giving them some time and weren't necessarily so immediate so I'm totally up for giving her a chance if someone wants to send me her EP or something!

Kind of unfortunate to be a Swedish singer named Tove and have a song with the word "high" in it right now...

Borderline and Even If I'm Loud are also highkey feminist anthems :hair: And her album's named after fuckin Beatrix Kiddo from Kill Bill!

Finally  :oprah:

I watched Swedish Idol 2005-2010 and she was one of my absolute favorites from those years. I remember thinking that this girl will go very far. She wasn't the best singer, but definitly the one who was most star material out of all contestants during the seasons I watched. This performance is a good example of that:

Spoiler

She's also the only public person I've ever been in love with  :toofunny: 

 

I really like what I've heard from her new stuff so far. Apparently she had some difficult years after Idol, but it seems she's now back in full strength :party: I'll be following this with interest.
