Sweden’s Tove Styrke returns with a second album of electro-tinged pop, once again proving that Scandinavians have got this pop thing down to a fine art! Maturing from her debut in 2010, this album features not only some of the strongest, most chart worthy tracks we’ve heard this year but also draws in from wider influences – there are touches of Reggae, Oriental styles, and 60’s swing littered throughout. Combine all this with Tove’s signature breathy vocal style and you’re on to a real winner. And in the dancehall-tinged, dub-influenced banger ‘Borderline’ she’s got the soundtrack to the summer locked down!
Recommended for fans of Robyn, Mø and Lykke Li.
