Lykke Li – Get Some
October 25, 2010 § Leave a comment
Everyone’s talking about this new Lykke Li track. Firstly, because it’s the first new material from her in a while, secondly because she’s giving it away for free, and thirdly because it’s BLOODY GREAT. It’s alternative pop at it’s best, dark beats and instrumentation that pop and break into a shimmery, sparkling chorus. Echoing that sentiment, the accompanying video is a dark yet glittering affair. Watch it below, and then download the track for the small price of an email address here. You can also listen to the b-side, ‘Paris Blue’, here. This is more sombre affair, with a focus on vocals that chill and capture as Lykke sings of under-appreciating a city (or perhaps a person) she has overlooked. After a few listens this one crawled its way into my subconscious.
