When it comes down to the best new artists of 2008, Lykke Li will make my shortlist for certain. ‘Youth Novels’ will be one of my albums of the year and from it, ‘I’m Good, I’m Gone’ is a fantastic single.
So of course, when I stumbled across a cover of the track by her recent tour support Friendly Fires, excitement built. And rightly so, Friendly Fires keep the songs original sultry, downtempo beat but manage their own signature sound at the same time. Vocally, I couldn’t of picked a better band to cover such a beautiful song.
Perfect. Absolutely perfect.
