I've been on a real Scandipop rant these past few days, but it's just because the music is SO good. Sorry, not sorry. Anyway, we've got a bonkers one here. Meet Tove Styrke. Much like the other Tove, she is Swedish, makes out-of-left field music, and is pretty great at this whole popstar thing. Tove got her big break after appearing on the sixth season of Swedish Idol, and once again the best contestant (TOVE) lost in 3rd place. Anywho, she decided to become a proper popstar with her self-titled debut album in 2010 that introduced her as a pop ingenue that mixed the electronic synths of Robyn with the folky beats of Lykke Li. As an added note, her single "Call My Name" was one of the best songs of 2011.
After taking some time off music to do a little modelling (as the photo above demonstrates), Tove Styrke decided to bless us by returning to the pop industry with her new song, the incredibly titled "Even If I'm Loud It Doesn't Mean I'm Talking To You." EIILIDMITTY shows a new side to Tove as she basically spouts random nonsense together over the catchiest beat on the planet. It has been one of the biggest surprises of the summer and has never failed to get someone excited the first time they hear it. Hopefully, Styrke's new album is a collection of these weirdo catchy songs and we can all be mesmerized by the amazing transformation Tove has had.
