So! Let’s keep on surfing the Swedish wave. Next up, Lykke Li – an Indie-queen. This 25-year-old’s sound is exactly what I’ve always thought indie to be. She brings a chill note, an experimental sound, but hot Damn does she remix well. Curiously enough, that is how we found out about her, in a search for some good indie-electro Lykke’s venture into my iTunes was about 3 years ago with tracks like Little Bit (Death To The Throne Remix) and Breaking It Up (Punks Jump Up Remix) really catching my attention. I thought, wow this girl’s voice really works!
Here’s a video of Lykke Li + Miike Snow singing together.. Oh, what I’d give to be at that show, it so so sweede!!!
And then came her collabo w/ Kanye, NASA & Santogold all in one track: Gifted. With huge remixes by Aoki and Aston Shuffle! The way the lyrics intertwine in this song makes me sit real uneasy and wave my head side to side…
