Adrien Begrand tapped young Swedish singer Lykke Li as the very vest of the by:Larm 2008 festival in Norway, tapping her as by:Larm’s “It Girl” and “a star in the making”. In further praise, Begrand called her 2008 release, Youth Novelsone of the finest debuts of the year... classy, fun, sensual, and more grown-up than you’d expect, it’s the kind of confident debut that puts the Kate Nashes of the world to shame”. Her new video, “Tonight”, is a bonus track on US versions of that fine debut.

Now on tap is the first video from their upcoming release, When Fish Ride Bicycles, directed by GL Joe.
