Swedish pop fairy Lykke Li shares some of her musical influences and a bunch of handpicked favourites from the past, present and future.
At first glance Swedish born _(artist-name)Lykke Li_ may look all sweetness and light, but behind her innocent exterior there lays a deeper, darker side. Bursting on to the scene in 2008 with her debut LP _(album-title)Youth Novels_, produced by _(artist-name)Peter Bjorn & John_ member Björn Yttling, Lykke Li wowed critics with her effortless blend of modern pop hooks and indie swagger. Her delicate, almost whisper-like voice telling tales of love lost, and love that is yet to be found. _(song-title)Get Some_, the first single taken from Lykke Li’s second album _(album-title)Wounded Rhymes_ sees her breaking free from the restraints of her innocent image. Opening with rattling drums and a rumbling bassline Lykke Li sounds more menacing and seductive than ever.
