FILTER: ALL VIDEOS
The Swedish indie pop artist Lykke Li grabbed the attention of international bloggers in the early 2000s with a handful of catchy, retro-chic singles made available on her MySpace profile. Armed with sensuous, barely there vocals and backed up by a quirky, bass-heavy electro dance sound (courtesy of producer Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John), Lykke Li earned a good deal of buzz for 2007's "Little Bit," both with bloggers and the mainstream Swedish music press. Soon, she signed with Atlantic for world-wide distribution of her first album, 2008's Youth Novels. The effort proved an international success and Lykke Li increased her visibility through touring, a guest spot on Swedish producer Kleerup's debut album, and appearances on late-night television talk shows. In 2011, Lykke Li returned with her atmospheric and edgy sophomore effort Wounded Rhymes.
