CRITIC REVIEWS

100
NME

Clocking in at just 26 minutes, ‘Sway’ is a succinct but comprehensive statement from Styrke – one that demands attention and declares her as a musical tour-de-force.

80
PopMatters

For 26 minutes, Swedish singer Tove Stykre delivers the sound of perfect pop for today's youth. She also makes it sound like a threat.

75
Pitchfork

Fascinated by the psychology behind human connection, the Swedish pop singer celebrates all varieties of romantic vulnerability on her exuberant third album.

Although the album unfolds a little in the homestretch, this is definitely one of the better pop records of the year. Aside from her slight reliance on heavy percussive moments to make a statement, Tove brings a lot of personality.

Rating: Decent (63).

It takes a good ear to take an already solid pop song ("Liability") and remix it into something better. Lorde tour mate Tove Styrke does so on her third album, Sway, an album that showcases a healthy balance between touching romance and dance beats. If anything, Sway provides an example that pure pop intended for the charts can be lively and refreshing instead of superficial and formulaic.

Rae Morris, US Girls, Kali Uchis, Kimbra and now this. 2018 is delivering quality pop music I didn't even know I wanted.

I see the potencial to follow the footsteps of someone like Charli XCX in the pop scene, I enjoyed loose parts of this but still not that impressed
