Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Lykke Li's debut EP has seen her quickly become the most talked about new artist in Sweden. Having recently completed her debut album with Bjorn Yttling producing (of Peter, Bjorn and John), Lykke Li's recent debut performances in London left packed audiences pleasantly shell-shocked. A master of subtle delivery, leftfield arrangements, a lovelorn melody, and minimalist brilliance, there's sticking power coursing through her veins.

Review

A supple, free-spirited pop slipstream meshing Kate Bush s love for timpani, Nelly Furtado s Latino bravado, Bjork s childlike experimentalism and Kelis love of avant R&B. --Nme

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 10, 2008
Format: Audio CD
For the record, Lykke Li has one of the most punnish stage names in all of the pop world.

Fortunately that is no reflection on the talents of this fledgling Swedish singer (real name: Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson), her high sweet voice, and her wintry electro-folkpop. And for those who are interested in a more sugary Sia or a more childlike El Perro Del Mar, the "Little Bit" EP is a solid introduction to her music.

It opens with a hollow kettle drum, as if it's testing to see if we can hear it. Similarly, Lykke Li starts going "ooh, ooh ooh," as guitar flutters and electro beats kick in.

"Hands down/I'm too proud for love/but with eyes shut/it's you I'm thinking of," she sings wistfully in a little sugar-candy voice. The vaguely Spanish guitar takes over the chorus as she announces a little quietly, "I would do it/push a button/pull a trigger/climb a mountain/jump off a cliff/'cause you know baby/I love you love you a little bit..."

Follow it up with "Dance Dance Dance," which is a bit too mellow to live up to its name. Instead, it's a little misty guitar melody, with a shy declaration of love: "So when I trip on my feet/look at the beat/it was all/written in the sand/when I'm shaking my hips/look for the swing/it was all/written in the air..." It's just so cute.

It's followed by the murky prettiness of "Everybody But Me," with its gentle jazzy drums and a layer of soft, pale synth. This is the only one that isn't love-related -- it's all about bars, clubs, and how "And everybody's dancing... everybody's toying... everybody's laughing/and I don't want to... They wanna take me home without knowing my name/They wanna put me on/But do they not know is that I'm not like the others?

I bought this EP to see if I wanted to buy the full album, and it is soo great! Lykke Li really understands the concept of 'moments' in music. She gives us time to absorb the sound through her pauses. Her fast music is also very comprehensible and relateable, I know exactly what she is talking about in every song. Awesome...has pushed me to buy the full album definitely.

I actually bought the single, then the album. Obviously I liked it! I recommend this for anyone who is into Florence & the Machine, Kate Nash, Matt & Kim, The Killers, or even Tegan and Sara. It's fun and happy and that's good anytime of the year!

I found Lykke Li through Pandora. Everybody But Me was my introduction. It spoke to me. I bought this EP to see what I would think about the other songs that Lykke Li had to offer. I loved it! I wished it was longer! I wish there was more! I think the best way to describe the sound would be Katie Herzig, meets Florence + the Machine, meets the more recent sounds of Tegan & Sara. I highly recommend this EP, just give it a try and you'll want more! It's a fantastic expirement in the way music can take time to let the listener savor the sounds. Can not recommend enough.
