Latest Obsession: Lykke Li

Straight out of Stockholm, Sweden, Lykke Li (Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson), brings a unique voice, sound, and style. At first, I did not think anything of her, but the more and more I researched and listened, she gave me that sense of "something new". It is like a piece of art work that is easy on the eye, but avante-garde at the same time. Her style and presence is strange but beautiful. After watching "Little Bit", the top bun never looked so good with a silver jacket and striped shirt. Also, it might be safe to say that she is definitely bringing the bun back. Another trend you will see in her videos are dancing; unique and interesting dancing. Why not? She does have a past of dancing on Swedish T.V. shows.
Not only does Li have an interesting voice, but her clothing and style are up to par as well. She keeps her color palette quite simple by wearing colors like black, grey, and white, with some gold jewelry. Her style definitely defines and represents European street fashion. She' so cute and fierce at the same time. I can't get enough of her.

Oh, and I recommend watching live acoustic videos of her because her voice live will blow you away.

Here is "I'm Good, I'm Gone" music video.
