A song sauntering along in the summer sun
Why you should care:
Tove Styrke’s album Kiddo was widely regarded as one of the better pop albums of 2015. Full of radio-ready pop hooks that still allowed her to carve her own niche in the music landscape, songs like “Borderline” and “Ego” found sizeable audiences around the world, especially in her native Sweden.
Her latest song “Say My Name” continues this trend with a catchy chorus and an infectious, twangy, and slightly out-of-tune guitar line, something you probably won’t hear on any other song this year. One listen to this and you’ll likely find yourself swinging your head to that simple, sparse beat. Her as-of-yet untitled third album will be out later this year.
