Title: Tove Lo - Lady Wood (new album)
Post by: RuHa on March 27, 2014, 03:32:51 PM
So I came by this awesome song by Tove Lo called Out of Mind, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_65tLeIWtx0
Decided to find out who she is, and seems like I'm not the only one who's impressed. Max Martin heard a song of hers and signed her in the fall 2013, as it says in this swedish article:"She is Max Martins new hope", http://www.aftonbladet.se/nojesbladet/musik/article18472413.ab

Since then she has, besides working on her own stuff, helped co-writing songs for artist like Icona Pop(ie. This Is.. - We Got the World), Lea Michelle(Louder - Thousand Needles), Cher LLoyd(Sorry I'm Late- ‘Killin’ It’, http://www.josepvinaixa.com/blog/cher-lloyd-sorry-im-late-promo-artwork-tracklist/)

In an interview to STIM she came with some interesting news, Max Martin and Shellback are mentoring a team of young talented swedish songwriters and producers to secure the next generation:"Fall 2013, Tove was invited to join a group of young songwriters that Max Martin and his colleague Johan Schuster, better known as Shellback, were mentoring, with the aim of creating the next generation of great Swedish songwriters."
http://www.stim.se/PRESS/Portraits/The-hype-surrounding-Tove-Lo/

Very exiting news! Here's an interview in swedish(called "She's living the dream"), barely understand it myself, so don't think I'm able to translate, but she does talk about what makes a song great. http://www.tv4play.se/program/nyhetsmorgon?video_id=2582829
And another in depth interview, this time in english, http://radarmagazine.se/music/interview/tove-lo/

Sorry for all the brackets and links making it a bit messy to read, hope you guys find it interesting!  :)

Title: Re: Tove Lo
Post by: AlexanderLaBrea on April 24, 2014, 01:38:06 PM
I can sum up what she says about Max:

The interviewer asks about her affiliation with Max/Shellbacks songwriting "collective". Tove says that she and a couple of other Swedish songwriters and producers, starting late last year, have been working on different projects (in which she primarily writes melodies and lyrics as she have with Icona Pop). The interviewer then asks if this means that some of her songs could be placed on a major artist (JB, Pink etc.) and she says yes, that's the goal.
When asked about how she got in touch with Max, she says that she had been working with some people that he'd had his eyes on and he ended up being curious about her as well. Not very much info, but basically she is not signed to Max per se, it is more of a Swedish songwriting branch within the label that Max/Shellback is in charge of to which she is assigned to.

Other than that, they talk about her artistry and about the lyrics where she mentions the bath tub and what not. She says that her apartment is cold and she sometimes eat her dinner there.

I like Habits as well, the chorus is amazing.

I dislike something about her voice and sometimes I think the productions doesn't do justice to her writing.
Out of Mind sounds amazing though, reminds me a lot of Say Lou Lou...

I liked that it's like three parts: it makes sense as a concept.

Shellback, Alexander Kronlund and Klas Ahlund are some of the collaborators.

There are two tracks by Shellback, by the way it sounds.

The other, must be from her previous collaborators.
The song produced by Alexander Kronlund + Klas Ahlund doesn't sound like them.

The album has been released in Germany (yes, we are late!) and I had a few listens.

I like "Moments" most. Nice lyrics.
"Thousand miles" is also another favourite. Reminds me of Lady Gaga.
Same for "Not on drugs"

Would love to see her at Melodifestivalen! And working with Max.

Big Tove Lo fan here. I have the CD and there's no direct mention of Shellback but he and Max (I assume) are involved but under the name Wolf Cousins.

Most of the song are produced by The Struts (who I still don't know exactly who they are and would love to know). There are a couple of songs from other producers, one by Kyle Shearer (who actually posted in the forum) and another by Lucas Nord.

Tove Lo was asked about Max Martin in a spanish webzine, I translated the questions for you :)
http://jenesaispop.com/2015/08/14/234259/tove-lo-creia-que-max-martin-era-un-sabelotodo/

What's the reason behind swedish pop music's quality?
I'm part of Max Martin & Shellback's songwriting team, whom are swedish as well, and I basically work with swedish people but, I have no idea why it is that way. Maybe it's because our english is very direct. We're clear and we like pop's simplicity. Something very important is, from such a young age, swedish people assists to public music schools. I went to one of them since I was very young. We also learn english and that's the reason of this american accent.

I read about Max Martin studying classical music since a very young age and that being the reason of the quality of his compositions, because just like classical compositions, the most important thing for him is the melody
That's true. Also, the way we speak is quite melodic. People from other countries points that our talking is like to be singing. But when people ask me about the success of swedish pop music I reply is a mystery to me too.

What is it like to work with Max Martin?
We did a couple of sessions, not for me but for someone else. He's really humble and very talented. He loves music and he's not the kind of guy that just puts his name on a song and that's it. Max works hard to make sure every song is perfect. I was very impressed, he's way different of what I thought he would be, but in a good way.

How do you think he was like?
I thought he would be a smartass, but when I got into the pop world I realised I tend to judge a lot without knowing. When I met him, I found a really nice, smart and ambitious guy and I felt bad about myself (laughs).


She talks about giving her songs to other people and says lots of people wanted to cut "Habits" and "Love Ballad".

Tell us something about Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do", you're one of co-writers:
That's what I meant: that song was written for her. People is like "why didn't you keep that one for yourself?", but we didn't wrote that one for me. If I kept it, I wouldn't feel like the song was mine, it wouldn't be authentic. About my work on the song, I just fixed the lyrics here and there and that's it: it's a bit like an undeserved fame about me writing the song. But it was great to be part of the team who did that one.

Keep it Simple is a smash, sounds like Sonic Crusader by Mr Flash.

So I just had my first listen.
As expected, the whole album is produced in brilliant quality (The Struts made a huge step forward!), yet the "hits" are missing.
My current favorites are the last four songs, excluding Ali's song (sorry Ali and José :( )

True Disaster is the perfect mashup of Maroon 5's It Was Always You and Taylor Swift's Style.

Ilya kinda messed up the snares in Don't Talk About It.

It's hard to choose a highlight, but Lady Wood is pretty good, Keep It Simple has strong some strong feelings there, I love the concept overall, it's quite short in comparison to Queen of the Clouds, no extra songs in the deluxe edition, what a shame. I can't wait for chapter two and hopefully three!

I wonder why What I Want for the Night (Bitches) wasn't included on the album, it's an amazing tune from Ali and Tove, almost as good as Keep It Simple

I met Tove last saturday at Lollapalooza Santiago.
I fangirled about the Wolf Cousins and she looked surprised about me knowing who they were.
I told her I was a huge fan of her work as well and and that I love Ali Payami, he's my fave.

She kindly replied "believe me, I'll tell the guys about this, it's so weird" :D :D :D

it's true. when people ask me my favorite artists, I wish i could explain that whatever work my favorite producers do is what i like. well, i guess i could.

Where exactly is the problem of explaining or just saying this?

I imagine that I could be explaining it in a way that the people don't like.
"Hey I like the producers, not the artists" it's not very well received (at least all my friends). Maybe because that's kind of discrediting the artist and the visuals and personality that comes with that, that's the only reason I came up to.
I really wonder why people don't find these things more often although I knew some people that when I said Max Martin it did ring a bell but they didn't know exactly where they heard that or who he is.

Tove did a version of PSB's Being Boring.

I expected a full production song, but it is a great song still.

No Ilya or Oscars :c, I was really expecting something from them, Rickard too, Don't Talk About It was my favourite from Lady Wood.
Besides, it's a great album, very well crafted, and I like that she went further than what she could get from the wolf cousins alone.

She wrote a new verse, so: writing credits. Of course.
