SINGLE REVIEW: Tove Styrke – Mistakes
Swedish indie-pop favourite Tove Styrke is busy preparing her third studio album which the world is expected to hear in early 2018 but I’m slightly becoming a bit impatient. After the release of the playful “Say My Name” she had me dreaming about DIY pop tracks that I could scream the word BOP to. Her follow up single “Mistakes” continues the synth heavy experimentation and sees her playing with a couple of layers of different sounds. This is definitely the most traditionally “pop” we’ve heard her be and the production fits perfectly alongside newcomers Julia Michaels, Sigrid and Noah Cyrus. The song looks at the feeling when you first fall for someone and you know it’s a gamble but its a risk that you think is worth taking. Her lyrics as always are honest and playful and there’s no denying that she knows how to write a catchy hook. “You make me wanna make mistakes, love how bittersweet it tastes”. // “Oh baby, gimme highs and lows. Wanna get close, no clothes. I don’t feel like going home now, got me all up in the zone now”. The vocal production on this song is similar to “Say My Name” and successfully holds onto her indie-pop roots whilst giving a mainstream pop finish. The track grows on you with each listen and will have you grooving along in no time to it’s throwback vibes.
