DEBUT ALBUM YOUTH NOVELS IN STORES NOW
“…a charming, globetrotting hippie kid whose Abba-rific debut shows how dance pop and quirky indie invention can co-exist happily.” – Rolling Stone
“…mixes glacial, shivery vocals s with atmospheric beats, a donkey-imitating saxophone, computerized calypso rhythms, a trumpet-and-flamenco tune, and a breathily sensual spoken-word intro” – SPIN
“…odd, idiosyncratic and engaging” – The New York Times
“She just may be the perfect barometer of what makes the chic style, quirky artistic sensibility and perfect hooks of Swedish indie op so fascinating.” – FADER
“Swedish indie chanteuse Li doesn’t just tweak pop music—she spins it around, spanks it, and calls it Sally. Her husky-sweet vocals float like a feather, but it’s obvious that her handclap beats mean business.” – Entertainment Weekly
