I love Lykke Li, it seemed like forever but I’m excited by hearing a new track off the yet untitled forthcoming sophomore album (2011). She debuted the single, Get Some, a delightful number, and just perfect for Fall.

Don't know who Lykke Li is? At age 24, brought up in artsy/musical educated family, she speaks a few languages too but she writes, produces and play instruments on her own music. This Swedish singer is mixture of electronica, folk, and alternative rock. She dropped her first album back in 2008, titled Youth Novels, her songs are literally poems with no fear.
She first caught my hears when she was on Jay Leno, and I was hooked.

Absolutely love this song (below), with lyrics like...
"You wasted your times
On my heart
And if bridges gotta fall, then you'll fall, too!"
YouTube - Kleerup ft. Likke Li- Until we bleed (+Lyrics)
She came out around the time Lady GaGa blew up (2008) but it's obvious her sound isn't for mainstream. No matter, she's very talented, and her sound & lyrics are raw, refreshing, and very real.
She landed spot on the New Moon film/soundtrack with Possibility.

She also did her own version of The Shirelles, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, hauntingly beautiful.

I was able to see her LIVE at The Fillmore in the City (San Francisco)

Re: Lykke Li
Swedish beauty strips down in gritty black & white for "Get Some" music video. Aside from some nifty split screen effects, Lykke Li spends most of the video just being provocative but with lyrics "I'm your prostitute / You're gon' get some," ... feeling lucky?
