Up and coming Swedish pop sensation Tove Styrke has been signed to RCA Records (Sony Music here in Australia) and, over the weekend, dropped her new EP ‘Borderline’ to digital retailers.
The 22 year old has come a long way since placing third in the Swedish version of ‘Idol’ back in 2009, after which she signed a deal with Sony and released a number of singles, an EP and an album. But now there’s a new push to transform her into one of pop’s hottest properties. And she’s well on her way, with big props from some of the biggest taste-maker sites on the planet already claiming themselves to be big fans.
But for the singer herself, it appears to be all about the music.
“I think that one of the great things you can do with pop music is describe things that are important in a simple way,” Tove says in a statement. “I love taking complex ideas that are reflective of society as a whole, rather than problems that are specific to me, and working them out in a naive way.”
The ‘Borderline’ EP is available now.
