Lykke Li - "Sadness Is a Blessing" (video)

by PopMatters Staff

28 April 2011

 

Sweden’s Lykke Li offers up a mini-film for her latest video “Sadness Is a Blessing” starring herself and fellow Swede Stellan Skarsgård, who just happens to be one of the best actors on the planet. I’m just saying. The tune is something of a homage to the sounds of ‘60s girl groups with that Phil Spectoresque wall of sound. It’s yet another fabulous song from an album chock full of them.
