Unfortunately, my lack of sleep has greatly affected my memory (i.e. I no longer have a memory.) So I forgot to share my amazing-ness with the world earlier today. Nevertheless, I am now here to let you know about the electro-soul flavor of my new favorite group: Little Dragon. Its name deriving from the “fuming tantrums” lead singer Yukimi Nagano used to throw in the recording studi0, Little Dragon is a Swedish electronic band formed in Gothenburg in 1996. More than 10 years later, the swedish-Japanese Nagano and her close high school friends, Erik Bodin (drums), Fredrik Källgren Wallin (bass) and Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards), continue to garner attention from all around the world.
I first discovered Little Dragon by searching for the vocalist in SBTRKT’s “Wildfire.” The female vocalist’s soulful, bluesy voice was unlike anything I’ve ever heard. I found that it came from the petite Nagano. The rest, as they say, was history.
But enough from me…check Little Dragon out for yourself
