Listen to a brand new tune by Swedish artist Tove Styrke called “Brag” from her forthcoming Borderline EP (cover above)!

“Brag” follows “Even If I’m Loud It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking To You” and  recent hit single “Borderline”, which shot to #1 on Hype Machine and came accompanied by an incredible official video shot on the Nordic island of Svalbard.

WE LOVE THIS!

Tove’s Borderline EP is slated for release November 23 via RCA Records / Sony Sweden.

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!

Tove Styrke – “Even If I’m Loud It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking To You” [New Track]

Swedish pop artist Tove Styrke returns with a fantastic new tune called, “Even If I’m Loud It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking To You.” It’s been a few years since we first introduced the pop songstress on the blog (here) and we’re SO GLAD she’s back! The new tune, Produced by Calle Ask  and Johan T Karlsson  is a fiery pop-rock-anthem that echoes the catchy, electric sounds of Dragonette and The Ting Tings. The song is a bit of a sonic departure from the bubblegum pop we’ve come to love and expect from the singer—but that’s why we love it! Listen!

“Even If I’m Loud It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking To You” is out now!

Tove Styrke – Debut Album + Videos for ‘Call My Name’ And ‘Bad Time For A Good Time’

Introducing Tove Styrke!

After taking third place in 2009’s Swedish version of Pop Idol 19 year old singer Tove Styrke  joined forces with Swedish producers Janne Kask, Peter Ågren, Adam Olenius, Patrik Berger  (of Robyn‘s “Dancing On My Own”), and song writing assistance from Lykke Li  to deliver her self-titled debut album in late 2010.

Styrke’s production team delivered an addictive pop-gem of an album that combined the bubbling electronica of Robyn, the hipster synth-pop of Annie  and the hook-laden stylings of Kylie MinogueStyrke’s  dreamy vocals and slight accent shine brightly throughout the album. Her voice feels new and refreshing, and its one of the strongest features of the album.

Now, two years after her debut Styrke has re-emerged with a brand new single called “Call My Name” and a remake of “Bad Time For A Good Time,” a track that originally appeared on her debut. The track has been heavily revamped and features one of my favorite female MC’s Ana Rab Aka Gnucci Banana.

Check out the brand new videos below and listen to a few tracks from her 2010 debut.

Enjoy!
