Lykke Li

Soul-filled sugar-powered pop

Phosphorescent with youthful vibrancy, Lykke Li’s light, captivating sound is even echoed in her name (pronounced Lickee Lee), with its bouncy resonance. Her catchy-as-hell anthem ‘Little Bit’ mixes powdered-sugar pop with the dirty realism of infatuation. For where this Swedish songbird aches with soul-filled vocals, she also dances out every set like the world were her bedroom; curling and kicking her sprightly body round the term ‘stage vixen’ as though it were a missile to the heart of a fading musical bonfire.
