New Music: Liv - Wings Of Love (Video)
Scandi pop supergroup alert! Liv consists of Lykke Li, producer Jeff Bhasker (Li's boyfriend), Andrew Wyatt and Pontus Winnberg of Miike Snow, plus Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John. Not a bad ensemble I’m sure you’ll agree. With Lykke Li and Jeff Bhasker having become parents earlier this year they’ve wasted no time in getting back to the day jobs and creating some music. Wings of Love is as organic as they come - a psychedelic flowers in the hair folk-pop tune full of harmonies, melody and sentiment. It definitely feels more like a late 60’s / early 70s summer of love anthem than a tune for our times, but maybe in a world full of political aggression and internet anger we need songs like this to take us to a better place?
Wings of Love is exactly the sort of song that I could imagine people taking their clothes off to and running naked, wild and free through the forest - which is exactly what happens in the video.
