2006–2013: Career beginnings and collaborations
“I think I started to write for others because I didn’t know who I was. I was too Lost at the time to know who the fuck I was and what I wanted to sing about.” —Lo on her choice of a career in songwritingIn 2006, Lo began writing songs with Christian Bjerring, a guitarist from Rytmus. The pair then formed a math rock band, Tremblebee, with three other male students from the school. Tremblebee played together for “a few years” in bars across Sweden, independently releasing some of their songs, before breaking up. During her time with the band, Lo developed a passion for performing on stage, and was introduced to Swedish production duo The Struts. After the dissolution of Tremblebee, Lo’s musical focus turned toward pop. She then decided to focus on her own tracks, spending six months in her shed studio producing a demo, while doing session singing as a means of income. She also learned how to play the drums and garnered knowledge about Music programming and record production during this time. Lo later spent time living with Icona Pop, in a suburb near Stockholm.
Lo later met an A&R who she handed her demo to. Lo initially met him upon the occasion of a party in Stockholm celebrating Icona Pop’s first record deal, and later she met him by chance in a bar in London. The A&R liked Lo’s demo and subsequently introduced her to a songwriting group which included The Struts and Hjelt. In 2011, Lo decided to pursue a career in songwriting and earned a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music. This new career path led her to travel to Los Angeles, and work with Swedish producer Max Martin. In 2012, she collaborated with British production team Xenomania and Swedish producer Alexander Kronlund, co-writing Girls Aloud’s “Something New”, Icona Pop’s “We Got the World” and tracks for the duo’s self-titled debut album.
