Tove Lo – ‘Lady Wood’ (Album Review)
Her 2014 debut Queen of the Clouds included massive anthems like ‘Habits’ and ‘Talking Body’, but that was just the beginning…
Swedish pop singer Tove Lo has just released her second album Lady Wood. The overall sound is deliciously dark, and features the explosive lead single ‘Cool Girl’.
The LP is an infectious electro-pop take on the star’s experience with love and drugs, and indicates a very promising pop talent.

The new record is split into two chapters – ‘Fairy Dust’ and ‘Fire Fade’. The first section explores the highs of a new relationship, while Chapter II focuses on the flickering aftermath.
The non-conformist 29-year-old is mostly known for her chill and honest lyrics, however she embodies millennial angst and unruliness in this album. She brings in honesty on some heavy themes, often making reference to rage and uncertainty, drawing you into a rebellious world.
Standout tracks on the glossy production include: ‘Influence’ featuring Wiz Khalifa, ‘True Disaster’, ‘Don’t Talk About It’, and ‘WTF Love Is’.
Overall Rating: 8/10
