#SPOTTED: TOVE LO IN TORONTO AT THE PHOENIX
It is impossible not to tune-in to the Radio and be hypnotized by Tove Lo‘s (née Tove Nilsson) new Single Habits. The Break-Up Song which has her proclaiming the necessity of “staying high all the time to keep you off her mind” is an instant Earworm and in a v. short time since her last visit to Toronto in May for Canadian Music Week, the 26-year-old Swedish Songstress’ popularity stateside has grown dramatically.
Tove Lo played a bang-up Set last night at The Phoenix and the passion certainly was there among Fans who sang along beginning to end with her hooks as she commanded the crowd with her distinct pacing about the stage. She doesn’t need frills like visuals or gimmicks – her voice and presence alone are enough. Her fantastic vocals narrated the Audience through an unbridled ab-baring journey of being care-free and restlessness with Standouts being Like Em Young, Not on Drugs and her Closing Number, the current Single.
We and some devout Fans caught-up with Tove Lo after her Show and she was amazingly sweet to stop for Photos and Autographs despite her Management making it clear she had a long day and likely wasn’t going to doing so earlier in the evening.
Her debut Disc Queen of the Clouds was just released earlier this week via Universal Music Canada and if the Top Ten-charting success of Habits is any indication, expect her to debut near the top.
Check-out her performance of Habits below:
