NEW MUSIC: LYKKE LI / VILLAINS

Lykke Li has become a bit of an internet darling. Here’s a new remix by the ever-reliable Villains.

 

Lykke Li (Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson ) is a Swedish singer. Born in Ystad, Skåne, in Sweden, in 1986, she was raised by artistic parents; her mother was a painter, her father is a musician. When not touring, she resides in the Södermalm district of Stockholm.

 

She released her first album, Youth Novels on LL Recordings in 2008. The album was produced by Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John and Lasse Mårtén. She had some success with the EP “Little Bit” in 2007. Stereogum named her an artist to watch in October 2007 and described her music as a mix of soul, electro and “powdered-sugar pop”. She also appeared on Swedish musician Kleerup’s self titled album, contributing vocals to the track “Until We Bleed”.

 

Lykke Li’s ‘Little Bit’ has been a big success and had loads of great remixes; Death To The Throne, Loving Hand and Gigamesh have all remixed it amongst others. This time it’s the turn of LA’s Villains to do their thing. They keep the sweetness of her voice but give it some big room electroclash underpinning. Lots of fun.
