Lykke Li

Swedish pop sensation Lykke Li has been riding the success of her sophomore effort, Wounded Rhymes (which found its way to our list of Favorite Albums of 2011), since it dropped via her own LL Recordings this past March. A new video from the singer/songwriter has surfaced the web, a spaced out and quite contrastive version of album cut “Jerome.” 

The new edition removes the prominent beat of the original and also all of its pop elements, finding Li embrace low pitched xylophone chords, perpetuating an even more sinister backdrop, and seriously accenting her bluesy, tempestuous vocals. Its accompanying video is somber, black and white, and follows her and two other women as they gloomily sing to the camera. Check it out below:
