“Styrke shined brightest on HARD in her vocal performances and this is also where her unselfconscious approach pays the greatest dividends."
A platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated, and national radio P3 Guld ‘Pop Artist of the Year’ recipient in her native Sweden, Tove Styrke has been on a meteoric rise since the release of her 2015 album, “Kiddo”, led by singles “Borderline,” “Ego,” and “Number One”. Since then, Tove has embarked on multiple headline tours, made SXSW appearances, performed on Late Night with Seth Meyers, and has received vocal support from artist peers such as Sam Smith, Tove Lo, and Shawn Mendes.
On her fourth album HARD, the Stockholm-based pop star brings her fiercely intimate lyrics to a truly visionary sound, spiked with elements of everything from left-of-center club music to experimental art-pop to early-’60s girl-group records. At turns explosive, poetic, and sublimely transcendent, the result is Styrke’s most electrifying work to date, fully embodying the ineffable wildness of romantic love itself.
