Listen: Air Max 97 x Tove Lo - Talking Body Chasm
The oblique club producer roughens up the Swedish singer's pop hit.
Swedish singer Tove Lo has been climbing up the US charts of late with her monster pop jam Talking Body, a follow up to her breakout hit Habits (Stay High), the track that put her on everybody’s radar last year. She's kind of like a cross between Lykke Li and Charlie XCX. Tove recently finished a stint opening for Katy Perry’s Prismatic tour in Australia, and now comes another brush for Tove with the land down under, via a remix from Melbourne’s lord of the left-field, Air Max ’97.
Air Max ’97 strips Toves’ slinky chorus to its bare bones, punctuating the honeyed, R & B-style lyrics “Now if we’re talking body? You’ve got a perfect one, now put it on me,” with a host of rattling, rolling percussion. It’s a great edit: Air Max ’97 brings impact, drive and interesting colours to the otherwise straight-laced track.
