Being huge fans of both filmmaker David Lynch, and Swedish artist Lykke Li, we were overwhelmed, when we heard last year that they were making music together. The song was called ‘I’m Waiting Here’, and featured on Lynch’s second solo album ‘The Big Dream’ that was released in July 16, 2013.
Lynch praises Lykke Li as an artist with great musical intuition:
She brought her own style to this song, which has a doo-wop sort of thing going on, but in a way it’s far-removed from the ’50s. This is Lykke Li’s song with Big Dean Hurley. She basically wrote and performed it in our studio in one day. It’s beautiful.
And we surely agree with David Lynch, as the atmosphere in this song is really amazing. It’s fascinating how to can draw lines between Lynch’s music, and his work in films, as the atmosphere in this song resembles his works on screen like for example the legendary Twin Peaks. Even the video reminds us of course of Lynch’s movie Lost Highway.
