Tove Styrke – “Mood Swings” music video
“It’s my idea and creative concept and I’ve really tried my hardest to portray these characters in a respectful and loving way. I love them. People are more complex than we allow them to be. And as different as these characters look on the outside, as much variation can be found inside one person.” – Tove Styrke commented on the Gustav Stegfors-directed video
‘Mood Swings’ finds Tove Styrke exploring the complexity of human identity and her struggles with mental health and self-acceptance. The likable tune possesses a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocalization, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Dagny, Astrid S, and Tove Lo. Also, “Mood Swings” serves as a delicious taste of what’s to come from Tove Styrke in the near future.
“‘Mood Swings’ is insane. It’s paying tribute to my best and worst sides. I really hate myself sometimes. But I’m trying really hard not to. These past three years, I’ve been through depression, fell hard in love, and survived a Swedish music reality TV show. I got a car, I got stuck with millennial blues, and I feel like an adult sometimes. Also, I feel like I did as a child, I feel kinda free.” – Tove Styrke explained
Tove Styrke has been on a meteoric rise since the release of her 2015 album, Kiddo. Since then, she has embarked on multiple headline tours, made SXSW appearances, and performed on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Also, she has received vocal support from artist peers such as Sam Smith, Tove Lo, and Shawn Mendes. Furthermore, she has released several collaborations including ALMA (“Good Vibes”), NOTD (“Been There Done That”), Clean Bandit (“Last Goodbye”), Lost Kings (“Stuck”), and RITUAL (“Love Me Back“).
“This new project is musically like a fun puke! It’s all over the place, every song tells a story on its own and has its own mood. I got epic love songs that sound like the ‘60s next to tracks like ‘Mood Swings’ and crazy bangers. I’m not even ready. I’m obsessed with it.” – Tove Styrke described her current musical direction
‘Mood Swings’ follows Tove Styrke’s 2018 album, Sway, a project which solidified her place among the top rising forward-thinking pop artists. The album was bolstered by iconic tracks such as Sway, Mistakes, and fan-favorite, Say My Name. The album has since garnered over 118 million combined streams, drawing widespread critical praise from top media outlets. As well as support from Zane Lowe/Apple Music and BBC Radio 1. Also, the album launched a run of seven tours, including support for Lorde and Katy Perry – and sold-out headline tours in North America, the UK, Australia, and Scandinavia.
