The family moved to Stockholm when Zachrisson was a toddler and when she was six moved to a mountaintop in Portugal where they lived for five years.

The family also spent time in Lisbon and Morocco, and winters in Nepal and India.

She returned when she was 21 to record her album.

“It’s really interesting from a creative point of view.

Before, I could only write a few sentences and I’d have to take a break for a few days before I could go back to it.

All of a sudden, I could write and finish a song in one go – verse, verse, verse, chorus, the lot.

And that would happen with song after song.

Finally, I unlocked the gate.”

On 30 October 2015, Li posted a photo on Instagram announcing her pregnancy.

On 12 February 2016, she announced the birth of her son Dion (fathered by Jeff Bhasker) on Facebook.

deep end


Released2018
GenreAlternative/Indie

I wait up, don’t wanna wait up for you, baby
Still I wait up, lonely in the canyon
No love, there’s no love, reflecting in the glow of
Million dollar man

Show me your cut, baby, come clean
Come out of your smokescreen
If you really love me, open my eyes
Bae, you burned me
Your kiss is salty chlorine

Swimming pool, swimming pool
Swimming pool, swimming pool
Indigo, deep blue, deep blue
Oh, baby I know where you’ve been
I know where you’ve been, in the deep end
Swimming pool, swimming pool
Swimming pool, swimming pool
Indigo, deep blue, deep blue
Oh, baby I know where you’ve been
I know where you’ve been, in the deep end

Hold on, don’t wanna hold on
If you let go, I can’t go on
It takes two to dance

Show me your cut, baby, come clean
Come out of your smokescreen
If you really love me, open my eyes
Bae, you burned me
Your kiss is salty chlorine

Swimming pool, swimming pool
Swimming pool, swimming pool
Indigo, deep blue, deep blue
Oh, baby I know where you’ve been
I know where you’ve been, in the deep end
Swimming pool, swimming pool
Swimming pool, swimming pool
Indigo, deep blue, deep blue
Oh, baby I know where you’ve been
I know where you’ve been, in the deep end

I’m in it, I’m in it
I was only gonna touch ya, now I’m in it
I’m in it, swimming in it
I wasn’t gonna love you now
I’m so fucking deep in it
I think I feel another wave, another wave
I’m diving in, I’m diving in it anyway
I’m in it, I’m in it
I was only gonna touch it now
I’m in it

Swimming pool, swimming pool
Swimming pool, swimming pool
Indigo, deep blue, deep blue
Oh, baby I know where you’ve been
I know where you been, in the deep end
Swimming pool, swimming pool
Swimming pool, swimming pool
Indigo, deep blue, deep blue
Oh, baby I know where you’ve been
I know where you’ve been, in the deep end
