‘Disco Tits’: Tove Lo Returns With A Euphoric, Shape-Shifting Smash!

It’s time for Lady Wood: Phase II!

In case you need some refreshing: Lady Wood, released last year, was the first installment of Tove Lo‘s double album about chasing all kinds of rushes. Lady Wood‘s first half, titled “Fairy Dust,” chronicled the initial hit of adrenaline or attraction; the second half, “Fire Fade” explored what happens when those sparks fade and the sweet escape isn’t so sweet anymore.

Last month, the Swedish songstress dropped her second mini-movie with director Tim Eren to close out the first installment of the Lady Wood era, “Fire Fade.” What the film didn’t include is any of the second installment’s new music. She was holding out on us, but that all changes today (September) with the release of her new single: “Disco Tits,” our first taste of Lady Wood‘s sequel LP, set to continue the story with two more chapters about climaxes and comedowns: “Light Beams” and “Pitch Black.”

As the song title implies, Tove‘s gone weirder, wilder and more sexual on this go-around — and even more high as f–kless, it seems. “I’m sweatin’ from head to toe/ I’m wet through all my clothes/ I’m fully charged, nipples are hard/ Ready to go,” she offhandedly declares across the euphoric shape-shifting production, which recalls the disco-tinged beats of The Weeknd‘s more upbeat Starboy cuts, with a touch of the robo-like vocal gymnastics and dance production of Justin Timberlake‘s “Sexy Back.”

No, I don’t, I don’t have a type/ Take a hit/ Come on over tonight/ Take a hit/ You can follow my bloodstream/ No, I don’t have a type….” The subject matter is essentially what we’ve come to expect from our male pop stars, except here we see a fierce female taking the dominant role, embracing her sexuality and totally owning it – it’s straight-up, hot fire empowerment. An inspiring assertion of power via insertion.

Disco Tits” is a mixed bag of Swede-pop perfection, which is part of what makes it so intriguing — and certainly the reason why the song’s been taking over my speakers ever since it debuted.
