Yet another incendiary performance piece from Swedish ingenue Lykke Li now, whose sophomore album, ‘Wounded Rhymes’ hasn’t stopped gathering in pace and popularity since its acclaimed release last year. Lykke opted to grace ‘Letterman’ with one of the slowest, darkest songs on the LP, captivating the audience with an evocative run-through of its spectral finale, ‘Silent My Song’.
She was flanked by an all-girl goth choir who are, in fact, her touring partners and Swedish countrywomen, First Aid Kit. A formidable outfit in their own right, the sisterly duo are set to release their own album, ‘The Lion’s Roar’ on December 6. You can stream its title track here.
But, since it’s really Lykke Li you came here to see, you can do so below.
