With my growing infatuation, I traveled to good old Google to do some research. This Swedish 24 year old beauty is a mixture of dark depression and a ray of summer sunshine wrapped up in an adorable package. Her charismatic voice and moody lyrics are almost mystifying. Although her break out song "possibilities" was included as part of the Twilight soundtrack, Li says she doesn't identify with the movies and books but is obsessed over the that fact they have become a cultural phenomenon. Speaking to Pitchfork media about her twilight experience she goes on to say...
"I like that age when you feel misunderstood and still believe in the pure idea that love conquers all. I feel like those young girls could really relate to my music. So I wanted to sneak my dark love stories into prime time. Why the fuck not? I didn't compromise at all with my song."
If you haven't heard Lykke Li, I highly suggest you look this chick up! Her latest album is titled, "Wounded Rhymes."
Not only is she a talented vocal artist but she has made a few short films as well that can't be described as anything but amazing...an art form in themselves.
