Live Photos: Tove Lo & Phoebe Ryan Enchant Hammerstein Ballroom

Last month, two of pop’s upstart voices filled the Hammerstein Ballroom as Tove Lo and Phoebe Ryan joined the same bill. Fresh off last year’s Lady Wood LP, Lo channeled her svelte, sensual odes of love and abandon through sheens of EDM production. She stalked the stage with a confidence more than earned over her past five years as both a performer and songwriter of some of the most addictive dance anthems available. With an EP and recent single “Dark Side” under her belt (as well as a strangely sweet “Ignition”/“Do You Like Drugs” mashup), Ryan introduced herself as a cool, intelligent singer-songwriter who wasn’t afraid to divulge a disarming vulnerability and tight ear for melody. Photographer DeShaun Craddock photographed both colorful sets, seen in the gallery above. Tove Lo is touring throughout South America, North America and Europe through fall.
