LOVA is not your average teen pop star. The 19-year-old Swede made a name for herself not with love songs, but with thought-provoking lyrics and a feminist agenda. As she croons in her breakthrough single “You Me and The Silence”: “No filter / no touch up / no sexy sugarcoated violence / no scripted reality / no small talk”.
Her songs, though chock-full of catchy pop goodness, serve a higher power. LOVA’s debut EP, Scripted Reality, offers an honest look at self-love and all its complexities. Her tracks are, in a way, the battle cries of the Instagram generation.
