Freshly brunette and freshly feisty, Sweden’s Lykke Li is further endearing her already-existent fans to her smartly-danceable pop songs with her more sinewy second release. “And while there are plenty of other fair-haired Scandinavian ingénues struggling to claim their portions of a shrinking commercial landscape, few are doing it with as much subtle idiosyncrasy as Lykke Li. It’s startling to think that Wounded Rhymes is only her sophomore release.” says Tiny Mix Tapes of Wounded Rhymes.
