Sweden (and Scandinavia in general) has always been adept at throwing stunning music at the rest of the world. Stockholm-based electro-pop act Tove Lo is no exception – her take on chart music features hooks galore and a voice of fractured beauty; it instantly makes you want to get up and shake what your mama gave you, laugh hysterically and bawl tragically. Her recent effort 'Habits' opens with a line we can all relate to: “I eat my dinner in my bathtub/ then I go to sex clubs/ watching freaky people getting it on.” Beneath her quirks, the synths are slick, radio-friendly, her choruses are perfect for singalongs and she crafts a relentless beat that forces you to move. It's intelligent, meticulous pop noise. She's going to be massive.
