Look + Listen: Lykke Li

Maybe it’s because the Scandinavian babe is soon to strut her stuff in the US this month that Lykke Li is back on rotation for us lately. A remixing fave, her latest album Wounded Rhymes kicks to the curb the sweet poppy sounds of Little Bit and Dance Dance Dance from her debut Youth Novels -- making room for a far richer sound. A deeper, darker heartache expressed through a classic voice.




In her earlier interviews, Lykke talks fashion and tells us about her androgynous style and her fear of color, saying she mostly sticks to black, white and grey. She collects jewelry from around the globe and when it comes to shoes, it's platforms and stripper heels.





Rockerista stylephile, Kristine, is deep in Lykke Land and put together this Wounded Rhymes inspired look from finds throughout our favorite rock spots.

Dear Sweden,

You have churned out something golden. Sadness is a Blessing has been stuck in my mind for weeks.

Lykke’s voice makes me want to wear monochrome duds, platforms that will break our ankles, slather on globs of eyeliner, and pile on layer after layer of neck exercising jewelry.  




Li kicks off her US tour on May 15th in Washington, DC. We'll be seeing this Rockerista in SF at the end of the month!
