No Rest For The Wicked Lykke Li
While she may have been lumped in with every other Scandinavian female singer peddling songs that fall under the umbrella of pop, there's always been something different about Lykke Li.
While teaser track Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone may have fallen into the slow burner category, first single proper, No Rest For The Wicked (above), is vintage Lykke Li. Built around plaintive piano and big crashing drums, the production is sparse, allowing lyrics to hang suspended, before the chorus crashes in like a big wave of unending emotional turmoil. source
The new album I Never Learn, is due May 6, 2014.
