Lykke Li


Growing up in Sweden, Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson was exposed to a good deal of divergent music--Sweden is known to have an amazing electronic pop scene, an impressive death metal niche, as well as a formidable indie rock movement. As she grew up, Zachrisson started delving into her country's music and eventually started writing and performing her own original songs. Her initial recordings were fairly rough, but her undeniable talent was evident and these tracks caught the interest of a few prominent Swedish musicians who offered to produce the up-and-comer's first legitimate album. Opting to record under the moniker Lykke Li, the Scandinavian songstress quickly became a favorite of indie rock connoisseurs in her home country and also in countries like the US and UK.
