I’ve been listening to Lykee Li for a while, but never like this. The Swedish songstress has really hit a cord in me and I’m not sure why.
I would say that she has the boldness of Lily Allen and the tender twang of Birdy, but to be honest, Lykee Li is in a category of her own. She reminds me of a bird: quick, yet pensive,’ joyful yet singing in sorrow.
Here are just a few of my favorite songs. I’d suggest “Youth Novels,” for first-time listeners, one of my favorite albums.
