Lykke Li came to me as a recommendation for from a friend of mine last year. Two things struck me at first; 1. Why hadn't I heard of this artist before my friend and 2. Lykke Li packs an amazing voice with the most soulful and balanced tunes created in a long time. There are slight familiarities upon listens (ie. El Perro Del Mar, Taken By Trees, etc.), but it's easily ignorable when stumbling across tracks as 'Little Bit', 'Breaking It Up' and 'This Trumpet In My Head'. Her tracks are as unique as they get, blending the likes of jazz, folk and a sort of Ennio Morricone-esque instrumentation. Put quite simply and plainly, I can see this lady taking off quite fast and making an impressionable effect amongst critics. She made a quick jump on the scene last year with her brilliant song (and video, might I add) for 'Little Bit' and now with her debut album 'Youth Novels' and her next single 'I'm Good, I'm Gone' around the corner, we wont be waiting long for this sudden take over.
