Tove Lo Habits (Stay High) – GUESS WHAT’S STUCK IN MIKE’S HEAD
April 20th, 2017 by Mike Coughlin
This is Tove Lo.
Tove Lo is a singer. She might write some stuff too. In the back of my mind, she’s produced music for others. Tove Lo Habits (Stay High), is – you guessed it – stuck in my head. So now you all get to listen to it with me. This is the part where I look up her Wikipedia and learn about her. Join me as we explore.
Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson was born on 29 October 1987 in Stockholm, Sweden. Her mother is a psychologist and her father is a businessman. She has one older brother. Her lifelong nickname and adopted stage name, Tove Lo, was given to her at age three by her godmother because of her love for lynxes (singular: “lo” in Swedish). Lo grew up in Djursholm, Danderyd, Stockholm. She describes her childhood as being “very protected” and her family as “pretty posh”. With her parents being academics, Lo achieved good grades in school and became fond of literature, writing poetry and short stories. In an interview with the BBC, she explained, “Growing up so safe, I think I was looking for something else”.
Swedish and rich. That’s a good combination. She went on and Habits became a hit (at least on my Pandora.)
In 2015, Coldplay announced that Lo would feature on their seventh album A Head Full of Dreams on the track “Fun”, expected 4 December of that year.
Nevermind, she has shit taste. Speaking of Bowie (go with it), more evidence that he was cool:
Coldplay drummer Will Champion told NME that the group once tried to get Bowie to collaborate on a song they thought had a “David Bowie-type character,” but the legend refused.
According to Champion, Bowie’s answer was, “It’s not a very good song, is it?”
Anyways. Here’s the song. I like it. She also gets naked on stage. I discovered this when looking forward for pictures of her and saw her right boob (but only the right one). Our standards and practices department won’t let me publish it.
