Tove Lo made waves in 2015 with her hit singles “Habits (Stay High)” and “Talking Body.” Now she’s back with “Cool Girl,” the lead single for her upcoming album, Lady Wood, which is due out in the end of October.
I first heard about “Cool Girl” from Lorde and her producer Joel Little. They were tweeting about how great it was, so I had to take a listen. I mean, if Joel Little – who I’ve admired his production work – says a song is awesome, he must speak the truth. At first, I wasn’t that chuffed – the beginning is a bit slow. But once we hit the chorus, the song just takes off. Not only does the chorus of “I’m a cool girl, I’m a, I’m a cool girl” grab you in, but the synth/bass work is fantastic. It’s a great electronic song to bike/run/dance/exercise to.
