Jens Lekman: You Are The Light

 
Retro-fitted with Burt Bacharach style smoothness and Stephin Merritt's (The Magnetic Fields) rich bass tone is Swede Jens Lekman's 'You Are The Light'. Sharing his fellow countryman Sondre Lerche's love of 60's orchestral pop, the upbeat music of this track clashing with the off kilter lyric shows Lekman doesn't know or care what is foisted upon the public by the majority of mainstream radio stations. He creates from a well of influences -- he is a sponge drawn from a clear pure well, that when wrung rings with dulcet tones and eccentric lyrical flourishes. Put simply he is the ambition of Badly Drawn Boy realized, he is the talent of Stephin Merritt made more human, more approachable by the unwashed masses... he is only 23?!
