Little Dragon is a magnificent Swedish electro group that have been doing their thing for over 15 years. This four-piece creates haunting, genre-defying electro pieces centred around frontwoman Yukimi Nagano’s arresting vocals, creating a unique brand of experimental and laid back synthpop that has only recently begun to garner them the attention they deserve, a success which has allowed them to collaborate with the likes of SBTRKT, TV on The Radio, Jose Gonzalez and Gorillaz.
This jam is off their third full-length studio album Ritual Union, released last month by Peacefrog Records, an independent London-based label that I hope doesn’t go under after those jerks set fire to the Sony warehouse during the London Riots last week. They’re playing at this year’s Bumbershoot festival just across the border in Seattle but I can’t make it! Heartbreaker.
