  • Tale as old as time: musician has a dream, musician ...

    Tale as old as time: musician has a dream, musician goes on a televised talent hunt and breaks out as the world’s next artist to watch. Except in Tove Styrke’s case, she got her start writing music after being tapped to compete in Swedish Idol. While Styrke finished in third place, she credits the show for giving her the ignition and resources she needed to start pursuing a music career. Since 2009, Styrke has struck out on her own as a pop star in the making, fiddling with an eclectic blend of percussion-heavy reggae, electronic influences, and arresting vocals to create outstanding dance pop. Her latest offering comes in the form of her Borderline EP, released last November. Since then, she’s attracted remixes for the EP’s standout tracks “Borderline” and “Even If I’m Loud It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking To You” from artists like RAC and White Sea. We caught up with the songstress on our roof recently to talk about her thoughts on being an emerging international artist. Watch above for our interview, and hear more from Tove Styrke on SoundCloud.
