Tove Styrke – “Borderline” [New Single!]

The return of Tove Styrke is officially in full effect! After a few years of absence from the music scene, the Swedish songstress made a surprising return this year with the fiery pop-rock-anthem (and mouthful-of-a-title), “Even If I’m Loud It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking To You”. The song’s percussive melody and catchy-chorus had us hooked instantly; but it became apparent how much we truly loved it when its energetic, eye-popping dance video was unveiled.

Styrke’s newly released single “Borderline” is yet another, pleasantly surprising (understatement) sonic curveball. Much like Diplo and Robyn’s “Dancehall Queen” the track is a laid-back, reggae-infused jam with catchy steely-drums and a groovy, electronic backdrop. But unlike Robyn’s seductive romp, “Borderline” has a broodier sound with a much bolder lyrical punch “I‘m borderline happy and I’m borderline sad, I’m borderline good and I’m borderline bad… I live my life in shackles but I’m borderline free”.  Amazing!

“Borderline” is out now!

Walter Sobcek – “Your Eyes Don’t Lie” Featuring Tamara Kaboutchek

Imagine if Fleetwood Mac and Synthpop band Chromatics got together for a collaborative track—the resulting jam would probably sound a lot like “Your Eyes Don’t Lie” the stellar, brand new track by Parisian duo, Walter Sobcek. The tune has a classic-rock sound that echos Fleetwood Mac’s endearing guitar riffs mixed with Chromatics’ nocturnal, Italo-disco vibes; while Singer-songwriter Tamara Kaboutchek‘s velvety vocals add a touch of subtle sensuality to the song. Amazing!
