Tove Lo – Cool Girl Review
The Swedish singer Tove Lo (Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson) is gearing up for some good music, and she is in no mood to back down. Coming back with something to satisfy the pop-summer anthem – Cool Girl. A perky smooth sounding single with crisp tunes of electro pop flares.
Cool Girl sits comfortably as one of the singles from Lo’s sophomore album and saw production by The Struts, whereas released through Island Record on 4 august 2016.
Albeit it has been two years since the release of her debut album – Queen of the Clouds. The artist has been fairly active recently, contributing songs to the likes of The Hunger Games and the Divergent series. Additionally the artist has collaborated with other artist like Coldplay, Adam Lambert, Flume, Broods, Years & Years and Nick Jonas.
Tove Lo expressed her Cool Girl to be the Pop song of the summer, will that be a case? we have to wait and see. Unlike her previous albums with big sounding choruses, energy and thrill, it’s unlikely you will find the same with her newest entrant.
On the charts the song saw moderate success, and in other regions saw decent numbers. Cool Girl has managed to debut at No.84 on the US Billboard Hot 100 charts recently.
The track follows a very smooth flowing melody with an infectious element. The song does however feature a bland understated chorus – “I’m a, I’m a, I’m a cool girl, I’m a, I’m a cool girl. Ice cold, I roll my eyes at you, boy. I’m a cool girl, I’m a, I’m a cool girl. Ice cold, I roll my eyes at you, boy” that in my eyes, does not truly lift the song how it needed to transition the energy.
Well, other than the big disappointment, the lyrics are scarce, the little available are somewhat express full – exclaiming how an ideal relationship should be.
An infinite repetition follows of “Ice cold, I roll my eyes at you, boy. I’m a cool girl, I’m a, I’m a cool girl”, almost like a mantra.
Scarcity of lyrics is how ever covered by Lo’s melodic tone and a sexy video outlook spices up the song somewhat.
The track has barely seen time, and eventually will better with the passage of time. Tove Lo’s new direction is definitely worth to keep an eye on.
