Little Dragon

electrojazz // glitch-soul

If a few piano keys can give way to glitchy sounds swirled around to accompany a soulful, jazzy, bassline bop, then strutted with a parade of atmospheric keyboards, hi-hats, and 80’s movie charm, where a melodically-luscious, poignant voice plays freely atop a heartbeat’s skyline, than you’d be listening to Little Dragon. Yukimi Nagano, by way of Swell Session, Koop, and José González, is making music with high school friends Erik Bodin (drums), Fredrik Wallin (bass) and Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards). Peacefrog!

A jack-in-the-box of passionate and playful stories.

    Little Dragon…

    Keine Rockmusik mehr. Ich kann den Kram irgendwie nicht mehr hören. Vor allem nicht am Rechner. Da brauche ich schöne warme Sounds die meinen Kopf noch weiter in den Bildschirm tragen und die Welt dort begrenzt, wo der Schreibtisch aufhö…
