CURRENT: Little Dragon – “Klapp Klapp”

artworks-000070762835-cvegje-t500x500Little Dragon’s music has always centered around Yukimi Nagano’s gorgeous and unique vocals, instantly recognizable no matter her collaborator, whether it be Little Dragon or Big Boi or Damon Albarn. So it’s a welcome surprise that on new single “Klapp Klapp,” it’s what the rest of the band brings to the table that makes “Klapp” the fantastic song that it is. Erik Bodin’s drums hit harder and more forcefully than ever. Håkan Wirenstrand’s wizardly on the keyboard/synthesizer actively challenge Nagano, providing her the space she deserves. Little Dragon have always had the parts to be a fantastic band, and with “Klapp Klapp,” the Swedish ensemble finally realize their full potential.

Nabuma Rubberband, Little Dragon’s fourth LP, will be released on 13 May via Loma Vista.
