Swedish artist, Lykke Li, has independently released her first ever Swedish track “BRON.” The song was co-written and produced by Swedish composer Ludwig Göransson and Swedish singer Little Jinder. According to a press release, “BRON,” which translates to “bridge,” represents how powerful the healing process can be after a break-up, as well as how it stands for the start of a new page in her career.
Lykke Li, who is known for exploring herself creatively and creating music on her on terms, introduced a lot of deep emotion in this track. The slower paced instrumental represents the sadness felt from a heartbreak she was experiencing. Her soft and calming voice eludes to the idea that she has hit her lowest point but understands that she needs to move on. She states, “Because I am crushed/But I will not cry more tears.” This line has shown acceptance of the situation and the decision to no longer let it affect her.
