Little Dragonsby Tumi Molekane / 22.07.2009
Every time I speak music with someone, how highly I regard their taste will solely lay on whether or not they like Little Dragon. This kinda-known Swedish group are just left of pop music, so you might be forgiven for thinking their music is pop. But you would be seriously mistaken because this is soul music. Soul music with an exquisitely crafted electronic sonic vibration that places it appropriately in today and tomorrow. Their lead singer’s (Yukimi Nagano) angelic instrument gives an everyday truth to some of the most bizarre lyrics on their self titled debut album.
“After the rain, we pretend it’s easier to begin without looking back”. But don’t take it from me, take a listen.
