Lykke Li and the Evolution of Swedish Pop
Lykke Li is one of the new up-and-coming acts on the Swedish indie music scene that is getting a lot of buzz. In the video above she performs an acoustic live version of her song 'I'm Good, I'm Gone' with some contemporary artist guests: Robyn, Adam & Bebban (Shout Out Louds), Daniel (The Concretes), Lars (Laakso) and Mikael (Hjalmar). Director: Ted Malmros + Christian Haag. My friend John at the Swedish indie label Hybris told me that Lykke is his Nr. 1 pick from the Swedish music scene right now. I still dig Peter, Björn and John. BTW it is funny how Robyn has been able to transform herself as a bubble gum mainstream pop act to an indie star - with much of the same material!
