I fell in love with Lykke Li’s debut album after hearing a song in Banquet (soooo many stories like this for me and I make no apologies).
I wasn’t really sure what to expect from a live show, considering the album was mainly quite understated pop. However she lit up a miserable November night quite spectacularly. Dance moves, extravagant (and I truly mean that), meant the show was much more enjoyable than I thought. At the time I remember saying it was one of the best gigs of 2008, and looking through all the gigs I went too I can’t remember many more that were better.
