Listen to Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers’ from Warrior Nun, Season 1, Episode 1, “Psalm 46:5”

Another of the fabulous songs featured on the new Netflix fantasy superhero series Warrior Nun is Swedish singer songwriter Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers‘ — Warrior Nun, Season 1, Episode 1, “Psalm 46:5“.

The song was heard on Warrior Nun as Ava is wandering around town and goes into a bar. She hears music she likes, and begins to dance. Most of the people in the bar watch her until one woman walks over and asks her if she would like a drink.

Ava takes the glass, has a gulp and then, realizing it’s alcohol, spits it out. She then leaves the bar after hitting a man and knocking him across the room.
