QUEEN OF PAIN
Sweden has provided some of pop’s finest talent, and Lykke Li is no exception. What she has offered us over the course of three LPs are gorgeous, intricate sonic tapestries made all the more compelling by her biting soprano voice. Since the release of her debut single, “Little Bit,” a uniquely minimal love song, Li has demonstrated a malleable sound that appeals to music fans across the board as well as a variety of artists. She’s had that initial single remixed by the likes of Drake and AutoErotique, while some of her other songs have passed through the hands of Tyler, the Creator; Beck; Friendly Fires; A$AP Rocky; and even Glee. Lykke Li brings all the soul on her own at the storied Apollo Theater as she celebrates her latest album, I Never Learn.
