Lykke Li Tour News and Updates
Swedish indie pop darling, Lykke Li, is truly an artist of the 21st Century. She percolated the international music scene through bloggers sharing her retro synth-pop dance tracks from her MySpace page in the 2000s. The dainty-voiced starlet released a massively popular debut EP, Little Bit
, off of her own LL Recordings label. The title song won her nods for the Swedish Grammy Awards and ushered her into mainstream music.
Lykke Li released her first full-length work Youth Novels by the age of 21; the record featured perpetually remixed song “I Follow Rivers,” which found its way into dance clubs across the globe. Her highly anticipated follow-up, Wounded Rhymes, was released to much acclaim, and Lykke Li subsequently went on an extensive tour of Europe and North America in support of the sophomore effort. The artist with an atmospheric sound teamed up with producer Björn Yttling (of Peter Bjorn and John) again to record her third album, entitled I Never Learn, which released in spring of 2014.
Lykke Li is known for her stripped down new-wave sound that mixes elements of hip-hop, alt-rock and pop rhythms with controversial lyrics. These themes are ever-present in her most recent effort, as Lykke Li “wanted to do something as pure and naked and bare and honest as possible”—a rare perspective one finds in today’s popular music.
