Outside of the United Kingdom, the Scandinavian and Nordic nation of Sweden has produced several of the world’s biggest musical exports emerging from the European continent. Just some of the few major Swedish acts to have successfully gained prominence around the world include the likes of Roxette, Ace of Base, Neneh Cherry, and of course, ABBA. Today, a new generation of artists and musicians are making big strides in the current pop music landscape and ensuring that the illustrious musical legacy of Sweden remains firmly sustained and intact. And from this new batch of Swedish stars, there is perhaps no other artist brightly shining than Tove Lo.
With her dark electropop sound mixed with a sexy yet edgy aesthetic, Lo has achieved a meteoric rise to fame for her incredible talents as a singer and as a songwriter. Although she is relatively new to the industry, Lo has nevertheless managed to impress critics and fans alike in such a short span of time. Her body of work thus far has received critical praise both in and out of her home country. Lo’s decidedly confessional and autobiographical approach to songwriting has led her to collaborate with and write lyrics for some of pop music’s leading contemporary acts such as Nick Jonas, Years & Years, Adam Lambert, Coldplay, Alesso, Icona Pop, and Ellie Goulding.
