15th December brings the release of the “Underbart”, the fourth single from Little Dragon’s critically acclaimed studio album “Nabuma Rubberband” released earlier this year. 2014 has seen Little Dragon enjoy unparalleled success in the electronic-pop arena.
‘Nabuma Rubberband’ soared to #1 on the Independent and Record Store charts earlier this year and the band reached dizzying new heights with their immersive and highly esteemed live shows; an illuminated performance on ‘Later.. With Jools Holland’ set the bar high and the band went on to ignite and uplift fans and revellers with headline slots at Secret Garden Party and the Somerset House Series and stellar performances at SXSW, Coachella, Glastonbury, Way Out West and Summersonic to name just a few.
“Underbart” is a euphoric track; deep bass sounds melt underneath hypnotic driving synths that are laced with a vocal so enchanting it glides the track upwards into a blissful, dark utopia. The single comes with two artfully produced remixes curtesy of SPY and Sub-an.
The Gothenburg quartet are inarguably the Swedish masters of R&B tinged digital soul music, their unique and ever evolving sound continues to soar closer towards sonic perfection. The impeccable production and otherworldly vocals of Yukimi Nagano, who’s voice and delivery has been likened to a “female Prince” has earned them critical acclaimed.
