This Spring, former Swedish Idol star, Tove Styrke is bringing her edgy electro-dance pop to the Crocodile, behind her forthcoming sophomore album, “KIDDO”! Don't miss her, and get those tix early with Thursday's presale! This show is all ages


Bio:
This is not Styrke's first ride on the pop star ferris wheel. Having been initially discovered on Swedish Idol -- she got a record deal with Sony and released her first album,"Tove Styrke" in Sweden with them in 2010, at the age of 18. Co-writing most of the material on the album, her ambition was to simply write good pop songs -- something she clearly achieved. The album went platinum in her native Sweden, with her second single from it, "White Light Moment," reaching number five. There was even a Swedish Grammy nomination. After the initial whirlwind had died down, she decided to move back home to her parent's house in Umeå, northern Sweden, for a year to figure out what was next.

Rather than mooching around the house in a dressing gown, watching telly and clearing her parents' fridge like most 19-year olds would, Styrke again upped sticks and moved to Stockholm to sign a deal with RCA UK and start work on her second album.

Tove put out her track "Even If I'm Loud, It Doesn't Mean I'm Talking To You" earlier this year and it received rave reviews across a number of American and British blogs. The "Borderline" EP and her debut album (to be released 2015) mashes sounds up, moving from "Love.Angel.Music.Baby"-era Gwen Stefani to Lykke Li, to the clunky piano sounds of Squeeze.

Influenced by Riot Grrrl pack-leader Kathleen Hanna, punk poet Patti Smith and patented weirdo Bjork, Styrke has a wealth of strong, independent and iconoclastic women to reference. A few years ago, it might not have been so possible for a pop star to happily talk about her affection for musicians so thoroughly out of the standard pop bandwidth. But Styrke's ballsy attitude let's her get away with what she wants, putting intense snare drum rolls next to reverbed trumpets, right before she drops the bass.
