Watch: Lykke Li ‘Live From the Moon’ Performance
Lykke Li performs three songs in black and white with the moon’s surface as a backdrop.
Lykke Li’s “Sadness is a Blessing” always had a ’60s Phil Spector/Ronettes ring to its production and melody, which Lykke Li plays up for effect on her performance of “Live From The Moon,” though she surprisingly eliminates the Spector beat from the live version in favor of a softer approach.
The video is shot in black and white and has the general look of the ’60s broadcasts that would have encased Ronnie Spector and the Ronettes when they played “Be My Baby.” Even the camera angles are era-appropriate. The “Live From The Moon” performance is a nice counterpoint to Lykke Li’s beligerent drunkenness in the “Sadness is a Blessing” music video, in which she stars with Stellen Skarsgård.
Lykke Li also performs “I Know Places” and “I Follow Rivers.” Watch the videos below.
