I remember when I first heard Tove Styrke
. It was back in 2015, when she dropped her single "Ego" off of her 2015 album Kiddo.
Since then, I've always tried to keep an eye on her (in the least stalker-y way possible). The chorus was so accessible and her voice had this smokey coolness to it that made it super unique. So when she recently dropped her new single "Mistakes" (following her last single "Say My Name
"), I was excited to hear that her signature smokey coolness was still there.
Unlike "Ego," "Mistakes" is a love song. It's about embracing the mistakes that might come along with hanging out with a certain person. "I've been trying to take it slow but you're making it impossible," she sings smoothly in the bridge, before a bunch of Imogen Heap-esque harmonies join back in. Combing the pop sensibilities of Carly Rae Jepsen with the attitude of Tove Lo, Tove Styrke might just be the best thing to join the indie pop world.
