Little Dragon has been around for quite some time, and it’s evident from their music that they know who they are and where they want to go.
This Swedish electronic four-piece was formed in 1996, when front woman Yukimi Nagano (vocals, percussion) met Erik Bodin (drums) and Fredrik Källgren Wallin (bass) at school. Now with Håkan Wirenstrand on keyboards, Little Dragon has steadily grown from an underground secret to a band with international acclaim.
The name is inspired by the nickname given to Negano, the Japanese-Swedish frontwoman, for the “fuming tantrums” she used thrown when recording in the studio. Having released their fourth studio album earlier this year, Little Dragon maintain a hectic worldwide touring schedule. Make sure you check them out when they come to your town.
Check out these two tracks off their fourth studio album Nabuma Rubberband.
