Although Lykke Li is from Sweden and sings (for the most part) in English, she has garnered fans from all over the globe. Case in point? Belgium-bred Flemish band Triggerfinger’s cover of her single off of Wounded Rhymes, “I Follow Rivers.”

The band recently hit up Dutch shock jock Giel Beelen’s show for the cover and the DJ was nothing less than psyched about the cover. For those of you who can’t read Dutch (or can’t access Google translate), the DJ describes the cover as “I Follow Rivers…but with cups!” Not only are there cups being played with knives, but there are also harrowing vocals that make this what is easily one of the best Lykke Li covers we’ve had in a while.
