Lykke Li is Swedish, 21 years-old, and has 2008 written all over her. There’s a huge bidding war underway for her now, not surprising given that her sound is a cross between Concretes, Robyn, Royksopp and a dash of M.I.A — all done with a lo-fi girly pop electronic twist. Her debut album — Youth Novels — will be released at the end of this month. [more about Lykke Li]
