Tove Lo and Her Magic Truth Serum

Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson aka Tove Lo is a is a Swedish indie pop/rock singer, songwriter and musician. She lives in Stockholm.

Tove Lo shortNot on Drugs’ from Truth Serum is thorny and ratcheting – but the coy voice is given adequate elbow room.

The rhythms on ‘Paradise’ stagger and stammer – but the voice rises and shines like a silver fish rapidly flying a ridge.

Habits/Stay High’ is a boiling kettle-pot of truths. The loss is palpable. One wasted night tuns into a lifetime of missed opportunities … staying high just to wipe away the bad memories is not living … just existence. This song has golden rays of truth, and perhaps only a glimmer of hope within its sore heart.

Out of Mind’ is soft and supple. With cotton tuft vocals and instrumental sophistication.
