Tove Lo – BLUE LIPS (Lady Wood Phase II) Reaction

Community Rating0 Votes

BLUE LIPS is my first Tove Lo listen, I had been hearing good things about her for a while now so I finally decided to give her a chance. And I have to say that all the high praise I had been hearing was well deserved. The vibe and groove found on the album was incredible; I found myself nodding along for almost its entirety. The production is a lush mix of dance, pop, electronic, and some splashes of R&B. All accentuated by her silky smooth voice. On the surface it’s a great, easy listen that should have a wide appeal. Once you dig deeper beneath the surface however, you’ll find something much more devious than its glossy sheen would imply. There’s a level of desperation and depravity to the proceedings (mostly sexual in nature), that becomes glaringly present when you really listen to the lyrics that are anything but bashful. I guess that’s where the ‘Lady Wood’ part of the title comes in (‘BLUE LIPS’? I don’t even want to speculate). It’s an interesting dichotomy and one that I imagine I’ll revisit again. Tove Lo just got a new fan.

“Live life now, peakin’ on top
So wild now, I’m high as fuck
Don’t look down
Mama, you can relax
I know how to dial it back
Not this time”

Tove Lo creates an interesting dichotomy on her latest album with it's glossy, pristine production and her unabashedly sexually depraved and devious lyrics. It's a softcore raunchiness with incredible grooves that I can't help but continue to revisit.
