Love can make you go all kinds of crazytown, and apparently no one knows that better than 26-year-old Swedish electro-pop sensation Tove Lo. In her latest single “Not on Drugs,” Tove likens the feeling of falling in love to being stoned. The video captures the metaphor perfectly with a bounty of distorted graphics and colorful smoke bombs. Lo tells Rolling Stone, “I choked on the paint, the smoke made me half blind, and here is my three-minute trip that shows the intensity and weirdness I feel when falling in love”
Her debut album Queen of the Clouds drops September 30th, shortly after the start of her first North American tour. Check out the video above, and tell us what you think.
