Meet Toffe, a 26-year-old Swedish artist with “a sound as sweet as the name might suggest”. Originally from Kalmar, Toffe writes and produces all his own material, the first of which – Single ‘Painting Pictures’ – is making its Spotify/iTunes debut on 28th April.

…and the start of a committed relationship with our replay button.
