Tove Styrke - "On The Low"
Swedish singer Tove Styrke has a knack for writing accessible, breezy pop songs with a twist. Having just wrapped up tour with Lorde—another artist who has made a career out of making slightly left-of-center pop music—Styrke is gearing up to release her new album Sway on May 4, and she says “On The Low” is a personal favorite. We can see why. It’s an airy pop song built around simplistic production and a sticky, off-kilter little melody that grows and builds into one of her catchiest songs yet. As she puts it, "It’s the smallest song in terms of how it sounds but in another way it’s the biggest. It’s just a straight up love song, but what else do you really need?"—Eric Skelton
