An evening of confidence, freedom, love and acceptance; this is what Tove Lo and opener Alma brought to Marathon Music Works for the Sunshine Kitty Tour 2020. On a gorgeous night in Nashville, Tennessee fans lined the building waiting for doors to open on what they knew would be an incredible evening.
Alma is a Finnish singer and songwriter. Signed to Sony Music Germany/RCA Records, she has an insane list of collaborations including Charlie XCX, Arianna Grande, Miley Cyrus and more. Fans screamed as the stage prepared for the show to start. A lot of people knew the lyrics to her songs and made sure to sing loud enough so she could hear how much they loved her. Opening with, "Have You Seen Her," Alma dished out a nine song set including hits such as, "Cowboy", "Bad News Baby" and my personal favorite, "Chasing Highs". You can see the connection she has with her fans and the support she recieved from her time in Nashville. The first part of Alma's debut album, Have U Seen Her?, is due May 15th! "Stay All Night" is the lead single on the artist's new album. “I wrote this song for myself, which confuses a lot of people as it feels like it’s for someone else. At the time I really needed some encouragement to be free and not think about the ‘what if’s’ in life. Now when I’m feeling anxious I just ask myself ‘would it really be that f**king bad?’ – maybe I should just stay all night.” Take my word for it, Alma is an artist you will want to keep your ears and eyes on.
Tove Lo hit the stage amoungst a sea of colorful lights to fans eager to party with her. This was my first experience at a Tove Lo event and I felt nothing but love, acceptance, freedom and support flowing from the audience. There was an overwhelming comfort in this celebration of sexuality and individuality. Everyone came as they were and enjoyed a night in music. Tove Lo performed songs from her vast discography such as, "Bad As the Boys", "Talking Body", "Bikini Porn" and "Habits (Stay High)" which really put her on the scene in 2014. This was also the live debut of "Bikini Porn". Alma joined Tove Lo on stage for their song, "Bitches", released in 2017 featuring Charli XCX, Icona Pop, Elliphant and ALMA. Sunshine Kitty is Tove Lo's fourth studio album released on September 20th 2019. Fans are calling it, "beautiful and new", "amazing" and "a lesson to love, drugs and desire." This is Tove's most vulnerable album yet. The Sunshine Kitty Tour still has several dates across the country, including Spring dates for a UK and European Tour so be sure to grab a ticket to a city near you!
