Pictorial Review: Lykke Li

Swedish gloom has never sounded better than when espoused by the emotionally dynamic vocals of Lykke Li. She possesses a rare elegance amidst the seemingly hopeless nature of her lovelife,always juxtaposing light and dark, even within her monochromatic wardrobe that sits against skin so white you wonder it she ever sees the sun. Her lovelorn nature doesn’t interfere with her performances; she finds a way to lift up audiences, showing them a hope for redemption even amidst seemingly eternal yearning.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
