Northern Transmissions

Despite some blander moments on the record that drag it down, it’s one of the year’s strongest pop releases.


Like Tove Lo herself, ‘Blue Lips’ isn’t perfect; it has a predilection towards being over produced. Thematically, though, her honesty about her imperfections is what makes all so irresistible.

The Line of Best Fit

Blue Lips invites listeners to really consider the way media and the world looks at sex and drugs. It asks listeners to challenge the taboos placed on women’s ability to exercise their freedom of expression.


An explicit testament to Lo’s chaotic love life, an unashamedly sexual and emotionally impactful piece of work. Lo ends up baring much more of her soul than her body.

Tove Lo sticks to her guns on her new release, offering a fun and considerably vibrant set of late-night danceclub jams that brim with rapidfire neon-light imagery and nocturnal ambience.

It feels like the colorful sibling of Lady Wood. Much more diverse and vibrant in production, what lacked the most for me on Phase I. Catchy ass hooks, all fun and games until it's not.
