SO SAD, SO SEXY
4 years on from the sublime ‘I never learn’, the Swedish singer transforms once again, trading the haunting folk pop for electro r&b, whilst maintaining that brooding sonic atmosphere that complements her expressive vocals so well.
evidently an artist who cannot sit still, creatively, lykke li now incorporates elements of trap music on certain songs, as well as synth pop. it marks somewhat of a return to the energy of her first two records, albeit completely different in execution. fans of bank, mo and grimes’ ‘art angels’ should find much to enjoy from this exemplary alt-pop songwriter. “Li’s latest foray in pop is a brilliant display of growth, both personally and professionally. She once again proves that there’s no such thing as boring in her music” 4/5 – the independent.
