Hailing from Sweden, Tove Lo is a creative, young and beautiful recording artist whose electropop and alternative rock is internationally appreciated. Her hit “Habits” is burning up the airwaves in the U.S., while it has already reached the top 10 on the charts in Europe and countries all over the world.
She has just released her debut album, “Queen of the Clouds,” an electrifying confession of sex, love and pain, with each of its tracks brilliantly divided into sections reflecting the songs themes. Each song is emotionally sincere and inspiring, all heartfelt as though she’d gone through each experience one by one herself.
Tove Lo’s voice is magical and enchanting and presents itself with a unique clarity. The lyrics to all of the songs on the album are catchy and creative and grasp your attention as you listen to them. My own favorite, “I’m Not on Drugs,” captures the intoxication and joy of falling in love, while “This Time Around” is tainted with a sadness that disguises itself with a beat that makes the pain feel better. “Love Ballad” is a fun track with a cute rhythm that makes one insist on getting up to dance.
Although electropop holds the theme of the album, it is still relaxing to listen to while driving in the car. The separation of the different categories of stories contained within the album is an intriguing and poetic approach to the new release.
Tove Lo is destined to have a huge hit with her release, and I’m sure several singles will arise from it.
