Little Dragon Twice/Test Single

Twice/Test Single


Over the past few years, Sweden has nurtured a good line in lovely alt-pop with Peter Bjorn and John, The Concretes and Jose Gonzales gaining international acclaim. The latest act to roll off this metaphorical conveyor belt is Little Dragon; the brainchild of vocalist Yukimi Nagano.

Nagano is a truly unique singer, understated emotion dripping off every note; recalling Kate Bush and Bjork. Twice is a master class in low key pop, a sparse piano line is offset by classy strings and woozy synth wobbles; it is restrained, but never detached.

Test is a funkier offering, with bursts of horns punctuating a fuzzy, bass-led R'n'B stomper. Little Dragon are definitely a band worth investigating, their self-titled debut will appear on 3rd September on Peacefrog.
