Little Dragon Tour News and Updates
One of the coolest bands to emerge on the electronica scene is Swedish synthpop act Little Dragon. The quartet formed in the mid-1990s and is fronted by Yakiimi Nagano whose nickname (in reference to her temper tantrums whilst recording) inspired the band's moniker. High school friends Hakan Wirenstrand (keyboard), Erik Bodin (drums) and Kallgren Wallin (bass) back the lead vocalist and produce sweet melodies tinged with new wave hooks. Nearly ten years after their formation, the band debuted in 2006 with single "Test" and a subsequent eponymous album with popular track "Twice."
The band has collaborated with artists like Big Boi, SBTRKT and opened for Gorillaz on an international tour, granting them a worldwide fanbase. Little Dragon toured extensively following their breakout album Ritual Union in 2011, and subsequently took a break from the road to get to work on their fourth studio album. Namuba Rubberband is a fusion of R&B, jazz, electro and pop, and is due to drop later this year. The group released single "Klapp Klapp" and a batch of US tour dates in support of their forthcoming record; they'll kick things off at Coachella and travel through Toronto, Dallas, New Orleans, Miami and Atlanta, before playing Bonnaroo and wrapping it up in New York.
