Tove Lo Career Details
The decision of choosing “Tove Lo” as the stage name was influenced by the Swedish singer’s grandmother. Her grandma was very fond of “Tove”, which stands for lynx in Swedish, so she kept it from her birth name and added “Lo”, which is an indication for singular. She jumped into the music world when she was a teenager, by forming and performing in a girl band with her closest friends. With this early experiment, she gained enough confidence and courage to enroll at Rytmus Musikergymnasiet, a Stockholm music school. The school that later on was the field of future collaborations, in particular Caroline Hjelt, member of the duo Icona Pop. Her first post-graduating gig was in the math rock band ‘Tremblebee’, the band lasted 3 years. After swimming in the rocking ocean for a while, she moved towards the pop one and never left it.
However, Tove Lo gained popularity in the music industry initially as a songwriter, especially in 2011, when Lo earned a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music. This leads her to become a component of her compatriot Max Martin’s songwriting team.
In 2012, she officially entered the music industry as a soloist, crowding out from the very beginning by making hits, such as “Habits (Stay High)” and “Not on Drugs.” Even if she considers herself lucky for growing up in a wealthy family, she made clear multiple times that posh life is not synonymous with a happy life. in her early songs, the singer used drugs and alcohol as metaphors; when she was younger, she tended to self-destruction, manifested with bulimia, drinking, using narcotics. Tove Lo took these two most known and affecting images to describe the demons of Gen-Y people. The first albums “Truth Serum” (2014) and “Queen of Clouds” (2014) are so immersed in this world and approach to life that Rolling Stone called her “Darkest pop exporter”. She kept sticking to the most row emotions a human being feels until her last album “Sunshine Kitty” (2019), talking about female desire and dread of not being loved as much as she does.
