From its haunting opening tones, “Borderline” packs a punch — taking influence from mid-90s pop, 80s ska and noughties electronica. Not many musicians wear their influences so proudly, or move so fluidly between sounds, or want to write songs that fictionalise complex metaphors, but this is where 22-year-old Tove Styrke stands alone. “I think that one of the great things you can do with pop music is describe things that are important in a simple way. I love taking complex ideas that are reflective of society as a whole, rather than problems that are specific to me, and working them out in a naive way.”
