Everyone’s favourite Swedish songstress appeared at Rough Trade East last night to promote her new album, Wounded Rhymes. The album has been previewing on Hype Machine for the past couple of days, so I’d already had a listen before purchasing a copy to get my wristband.
On first hearing a few tracks sounded a little over-produced, so it was great to hear a stripped down, minimalist set that really let you focus on the lyrics with no distractions. After a rollicking, tambourine-jangling version of Get Some and the painfully poignant I Know Places, I was completely won over.
Lykke Li: smaller than I expected, but she can’t half sing.
