After months of teasing, “Grime Femme“, the fifth album of Tove Lo, is right here. As a matter of reality, I need to say… I used to be extra invested on this part than in any of her earlier album outings. By coincidence, “Grime Femme” is her first launch as an impartial releasing artist. I’m uncertain whether or not this had any actual bearing on my appreciation for this album over the others. Though, step by step, I discovered the electro-pop vibes extra to my style this time round. Likewise, the identical applies with the subjects it speaks about. For instance, harmful love and Tove’s relationship along with her femininity.
“It’s about my physique, my fears, my desires. Songs on this album will contradict one another, will in all probability upset a few of you, will make you wanna dance & cry. It’s extraordinarily private as at all times which is why it’s so onerous to explain in just some phrases”. – Tove Lo
As was speculated, every album observe is paired with a visible scene. With 40 minutes of compelling imagery, this movie presents Tove Lo portrayed in her most genuine method up to now.
With the mission unleashed, the main target of “Grime Femme” now turns to the observe “Grapefruit“. By her personal admission, Tove has mentioned it is a track she has tried to write down for over 10 years. The observe covers her relationship with an consuming dysfunction and physique points. (Which she confirms she has been free from for a really very long time).
“One of many many emotions I bear in mind is needing to crawl out of my very own pores and skin. I felt so trapped in a physique I hated. It was truthfully actually onerous placing myself again in that headspace, but it surely was crucial for me”. She explains.
The album “Grime Femme“, however most significantly, the observe “Grapefruit” has modified my opinion of Tove Lo. Earlier than this album arrived, I considered her as projecting confidence and as an empowerment determine. With this flashback and a present of vulnerability, I’ve undoubtedly, gained a brand new admiration for Tove.
