Little Dragon Biography

On the surface the quiet port city of Gothenburg doesn't seem like it would harbor much soul music but it comes through in the dreamy rhythmical shifting moody creature that is Little Dragon. The four-piece band blends R&B, new wave, electronica and experimental pop. They kicked off 2011 with a headlining tour of the U.S. and thanks to a recommendation from superfan Questlove of the Roots, a performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in March. In May, Little Dragon appeared on the track "Just Don't" from Raphael Saadiq's Stone Rollin', a record some are already calling the album of the year. Big Boi and DJ Shadow called to
invite the group to work on new music. And it seems that the rest of the world is starting to catch on to what tastemakers from BBC's Gilles Peterson and the DJs at Los Angeles' influential KCRW have known for years. On July 26th, 2011 Little Dragon will release Ritual Union, an album which finds futuristic, trance-like rhythms mixed with the soulful vibes of their debut LP plus upfront and danceable sounds of Machine Dreams.

"Little Dragon makes pop music for folks who think they hate pop music" - NPR

"But you need to listen to it if only because rarely do young bands step forward so quickly with something this majestic and memorable and modern. Little Dragon's evolution will be fun to listen to. Maybe even more than Prince's next three albums." - ESQUIRE

"Sure to be your sultry summer soundtrack." - Complex

"If it was a love invocation, it worked. Swoon!" - Fader

"If you're looking for a new band to love, this little Swedish electro/soul outfit could be what you've been waiting for." - Huffington Post

"The sweet spot separating Motown and Paisley Park" - Esquire

"An alternatively propulsive and delicate sound dictated by strains of electro and the striking vocal coo of Yukimi Nagano." - Spin

"You can dance to these tracks, but you can also just chill out to them-the music is a sort of indie jazz that'll suit any type of playlist." - Teen Vogue

"...Richly textured and highly vibe-y electronic music that could soundtrack both the dance party ("Night Light," "Little Man") and the chill-out room ("Crystalfilm," "When I Go Out"). -

"Pressing yet vulnerable, the title track on the new "Ritual Union" sounds like an electro-tweaked update of the sleek Holland-Dozier-Holland-produced hits of mid-'60s Motown. " - Washington Post
