Lykke Li “Untitled” Video

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

A juxtaposition between beauty and violence, Lykke Li‘s new video for “Untitled” offers many more questions than it does answers. Dawning stilettos, a (faux?) fur and leather jacket and a fashionably revealing top, the Swedish vocalist eventually kneels as she thrusts herself into stabbing the sand that surrounds her. From there she seductively maneuvers a butterfly knife and we hear the sound of waves crashing in the background before an unrecognizable whisper carries the clip away. What does it all mean? I haven’t the slightest.

As it stands, “Untitled” is not being promoted as being included on Lykke Li’s forthcoming album Wounded Rhymes, which is set for a February 28 release. The album’s lead single, “Get Some,” dropped this past October.
