Kleerup – Until We Bleed (feat. Lykke Li)

Kleerup - Kleerup (2009)

It’s the minimal beats and the soft, slightly other-worldly feel to Lykke Li’s voice that makes me keep going back to this track – plus the unexpected strings that simmer in the background and flow into the main mix every now and then.

Kleerup is actually Swedish producer Andreas Kleerup and vocalist, Lykke Li is an artist in her own right – she released her first studio album on LL Recordings in 2008 and, more recently, her single ‘Possibility’ was featured on the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack.

Some one(s) seems to have tagged that track ‘for crying’, ‘for a rainy day’ and ‘depressing’ on last.fm – Until We Bleed is anything but. Try ‘for dancing’, ‘for festivals in the sunshine’, ‘chill-inducing’ instead…it’s not an uplifting rave party though!

From Kleerup’s self-titled album released on EMI Sweden in May 2009.

Hope she does more of this…
