In the last year, Little Dragon have emerged from their Swedish homeland to become one of the most talked-about acts around, working with Jose Gonzalez, and collaborating on two tracks for Gorillaz’ forthcoming third album. With disparate influences from Depeche Mode to Prince, LCD Soundsystem to James Holden, Dancehall to R&B, Jazz and Soul, Little Dragon take their place among artists who straddle many genres, yet somehow create their own and in doing so create “sounds that make time stop” (Yukimi). Futuristic yet somehow retro, recent album Machine Dreams sees Little Dragon achieve something timeless; that elusive pop classic.
