America has found its latest Swedish sensation!
Following in the footsteps of Avicii, Robyn, Icona Pop, Miike Snow, Lykke Li – and the list goes on and on – Tove Styrke (not to be confused with Tove Lo, who is also from Sweden), is making a name for herself in the states.
Her career took off in Sweden all the way back in 2009, when she was a contestant on its version of American Idol. And now at only 22 years old, she’s proving she can make it as a worldwide star.
The electropop singer, who I included in this week’s New Music Monday, made an energetic debut at West Hollywood’s Troubadour last night, and she did not disappoint. Performing a handful of songs, including “Borderline,” “Brag” and “Even If I’m Loud, It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking to You,” there was not a single body in the venue that wasn’t bouncing away to her infectious sound.
Luckily, I had fellow Tove Styrke fan Natalie Kanooni on hand to capture some of the action in photos. Enjoy the shots, and check out one of the adorable singer’s singles “Ego” below!:
