Tove Styrke has released a music video for her single ‘Mistakes‘, a song all about the twisted nature of being perfect and exploring life and the flaws that come with it.

Having released the audio version back in September, Tove spoke on what the single signified, noting how “sometimes you need chaos to feel in control. I mean, if I can shake myself around a bit that proves to me that I’m not powerless in my life. Even when it feels that way. Mistakes can be about a person or yourself or just life in general.”

“But I guess the point is that you don’t need to be perfect and that there’s something valuable in letting go of the person that you think you are or should be. Maybe all mistakes aren’t mistakes.”

Working in collaboration with Swedish director Joanna Nordahl on the music video, Tove and Joanna tried their best to represent “this feeling of breaking something that’s perfect, something you might even consider perfect yourself, just to reach a sense of freedom.”

Going into detail about how “messing up on purpose to feel in control of your life.”

“With this in mind I wanted to move away from a typical love story and we ended up speaking about religious symbolism, the Madonna-Whore complex, femininity, 90s rom-coms, Britney Spears and the well behaved, wholesome Bride as a traditional representation of the ‘perfect woman’.”

Tove adds how she “dreamed up this idea where” she was about to “live out all” of her “pop star fantasies while still keeping the whole thing very real.”
