Lykke Li (born Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson March 18, 1986), better known by her stage name, is a Swedish indie singer.
Li was born in Ystad, Skane, in Sweden, in 1986 and was raised by artistic parents; her mother was a photographer, her father is a musician. The family moved to Stockholm when Li was a toddler and later moved to Portugal when Li was six, where they lived for five years; the family also spent time in Lisbon and Morocco and spent winters in Nepal and India. She moved to New York for three months when she was 19, where she recorded her album, before returning to Sweden.

I once spent two weeks in Ystad in January in the early 70’s. It was very cold but the locals were friendly. All in all I have fond memories of Ystad.
Just been listening to Lykke Li‘s album, Youth Novel. She is a little bit different from the main-stream pop girls of today.
A little unusual, not predictable. Strangely compelling. I liked the album.
