It’s hard not to fall in love with singer-songwriter Lykke Li.  She has fantastic songwriting prowess, crafting beautiful songs which still retain a good degree of fun and playfulness, and pairs it with an amazingly intimate and delicate voice which entrances and lulls listeners into a state of calm.  Also, she’s cute and Swedish, which is definitely a winning combination.  It should therefore be no surprise that her debut album, “Youth Novels”, released in 2008 was an instant hit.  It contained numerous standouts like the sultry “Little Bit” and the magical “Breaking It Up”, as well as plenty of other great songs.

I unfortunately missed a chance to see her the last time she played in Toronto, but the embedded video of her performing her new song “Possibility” gives me shivers.  If I manage to catch her live show, there is a very good chance that she’ll steal Emily Haines’ spot as my number one indie songstress crush.  High honours.

P.S. I’m already aware that this song is on a soundtrack for one of those damn vampire movies
