Swedish pop stars got swagger. Lykke Li’s first new single, the sexually seductive “Get Some,” was a wonderful return to the spotlight since her 2008 debut, Youth Novels, tantalized our audible taste buds. Her latest single, “I Follow Rivers,” from her forthcoming sophomore effort, Wounded Rhymes, while certainly less promiscuous, follows a similar formula, housing a tribal beat whose sinister and mysterious resonance works well with Li’s slightly distorted, bluesy and engaging vocals. It offers everything we’ve come to love from the songstress, and it certainly seems like she is devising a darker, more ominous theme on Wounded Rhymes, which comes out via her own LL Recordings on March 1st. Listen below:
