Our Favorite Tunes From Lykke Li’s ‘So Sad So Sexy’July 11, 2018
Lykke Li is one of our favorite sad, sexy Swedes. And she’s got a new album which is keeping us swooning.
Released on June 8, Li’s “so sad so sexy” is a 10-track album that references her previous melancholy style with an added trap influence. Also like previous albums, Li has written or co-written every track.
Paper Magazine notes “so sad so sexy” is chock-full of, “ever-surprising whimsicality, divine overflowing synths, playful beats, devastating lyricism, and the capacity to wring more depth out of the word ‘baby’ than an old blues crooner.”
Take a listen for yourself. Here are our four favorite tracks.
Li will be performing at Lollapoolza in August. Other U.S. tour spots include Washington, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia and New York City. Find out more information about her tour on her website, and keep up with her on her Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.
This song embodies the so sad, so sexy titular vibe of the album.
We’re feeling this song, which features Portland rapper Aminé.
Around the 2:30 mark, you get that extra rhythmic layer…oh yeah.
“Jaguars in the Air”
From the second we heard the beat, this track had us hooked.
