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!
