The TickeT gig of The week

Lykke Li might just be the in­die Lady Gaga. She’s cer­tainly kooky enough, and from the mo­ment she ap­peared through a thick cloud of dry ice on the Tri­pod stage on Satur­day un­til the mo­ment she dis­ap­peared into heavy black­ness af­ter a 90-minute barnstorming set, the diminu­tive singer had the crowd mes­merised. The hyp­notic per­cus­sion, Mo­town har­monies, pop sen­si­bil­i­ties and dark lyrics all sug­gest that while Lykke may be small, she’s go­ing to be mas­sive.
