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, Lykke Li released her debut EP, 2007's Little Bit, on her own fledgling LL Recordings label. Soon, she signed with Atlantic for worldwide distribution of the Little Bit EP and her first album, 2008's Youth Novels.
The album 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.
