Sweden’s Little Dragon returned this summer with their spectacular second album – a pulsating electro pop epic!! A bold and surprising side/two step onwards from their 2007 self titled debut (released to great acclaim!) ‘Machine Dreams’, with its nagging hooks and gloriously infectious tunes, will finally see the band break out into the mainstream.
With disparate influences from Depeche Mode to Prince, LCD Soundsystem to James Holden – dancehall, R&B, jazz, soul – Little Dragon take their place among artists who straddle many genres, yet somehow create their own. Futuristic yet somehow retro, ‘Machine Dreams’ sees Little Dragon achieve something timeless; that elusive pop classic.
Having toured relentlessly since the last record, Little Dragon will play at Brighton’s Jam on Wednesday 9th December.
