The world domination of the Swedes continues. For the last few years, so many acts from the nation have become mainstays of the pop world, almost making it seem effortless. It’s been anything but that, due to the high level of detail, sophistication, and resolve the Swedes put into crafting pop. Tove Styrke is a prime example of this. She’s been releasing music since her teenage years and is now setting her sights on winning over the US. A tall order for any European, but luckily she has her incredible songs to rely on and a prime opening slot with Lorde. Not bad, right?
