Little Dragon release new album in April!

By on March 11, 2017

Grammy-nominated Little Dragon announced that their highly anticipated album, High Season, is released April 14 through Because Music. This will be the band’s first release since 2014 when they gave out the plate Nabuma Rubberband.

On February 14 this year, released Little Dragon the song “High” from the upcoming album and yesterday they shared with them of an additional new song – “Sweet”. See the music video for it here >>.

Little Dragon is loved by their audience for their unique and special sound of electronic pop and their amazing live performances. The little wider music world – artists like Big Boi, Raphael Saadiq, Kaytranada and Moodymann and others – describes the Swedish quartet and the singer Yukimi Nagano, as brilliant practitioners of the European soul music. The combination of Yukimi’s exceptional voice, songwriting that manages to capture the Swedish pop art, nature and a love of music history and contemporary club culture makes clearly Little Dragon extraordinary.

The new album Season High is the band’s most accomplished album to date. The plate consists of a set of personal songs that showcase Yukimi’s perfect balance when it comes to soulful singing while the group manages to capture their musical influences into a sound that gives the feeling of synthetic soul-club in a 80/90 century.
