Lykke Li's coming back with brand new single "Get Some" and has just provided video for it.
Career of Lykke Li has started not so long time ago. In 2008 she released her debut album "Youth Novels" produced by Björn Yttling (Peter Bjorn and John) that became quite unique combination of indie-pop and electronic music being something completely original but still quite acceptable to turn many heads to this young promising artist. The album reached Top-3 in Sweden and was released in other European countries. Lykke Li featured releases of some respectable Scandinavian acts like Kleerup and Röyksopp and her songs got to soundtracks of huge Hollywood releases - "Sorority Row" and "The Twilight Saga: New Moon".
This Autumn Lykke Li's back and new single "Get Some" is another original mix of Tarantino-guitars, jazz-melodics and African drums. Lykke looks quite gorgeous in video in image of extreme-Gaga going Voodoo queen in hypnotizing set singing in front of huge screen with some crazy old films cut.
B-side of "Get Some" single - "Paris Blue" otherwise is very thoughtful dark track with minimalistic instrumental and Lykke's voice drowning in melancholic echoes and depressive mood.
